    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090414/ap_on_sp_co_ne/bkc_fiu_coaching_search_3<blockquote>MIAMI – Isiah Thomas is on the verge of starting his coaching career over at Florida International.

    The Hall of Fame point guard and former New York Knicks coach is deliberating whether to take over FIU's basketball program, a person with knowledge of the school's search told The Associated Press on Monday night.

    The person, speaking on condition of anonymity because university officials have not authorized anyone to reveal search details, said FIU was "very hopeful" that a deal could be closed with Thomas on Tuesday morning. He would replace Sergio Rouco, who was ousted after five consecutive losing seasons, including a 13-20 campaign this year.

    If Thomas accepts, he would be introduced in Miami on Wednesday. He did not immediately respond to messages left on his phone by The Associated Press on Monday night.</blockquote>Now I'm just going to sit back and wait for the hounds to show up.

    This won't end well.

    Too bad he isn't willing to become a college scout, because his draft record is actually quite good:

    Damon Stoudamire, Marcus Camby, Tracy McGrady, David Lee, Wilson Chandler. Pretty good reserves in Trevor Ariza and Renaldo Balkman. Made draft-day deal for Nate Robinson.

    It's like Florida International went out of its way to find the one guy in New York loathed more than the coach at Florida Atlantic.

    Congratulations. That's a job well done.

    With Isiah Thomas in it, how long will the NCAA stay alive?

    There's always another program to infect.

    Quick! The Flit!
     
  8. If Florida International has an endowment, I advise them to convert it to gold and bury it out behind the library.

    If I'm a basketball player at Florida International, I'm filling out transfer papers.

    Don't bother. Isiah will offer you to the Clippers in exchange for Zach Randolph.

    Really? I'd think that people would be giving the place a closer look because it's Isiah Thomas.
     
  12. Yes, but most of the people in the FBI have used up their eligibility.
