The Isiah Thomas era is officially over at FIU, and, well, the program still exists! So there's something! Thomas's stunt hiring didn't irretrievably break the program. There's still hope. Maybe FIU can hire some respected assistant from a larger program to help take the school to a new level. Or maybe they can just hire another stunt coach designed to make headlines and get publicity for the school and little else.
Here's out suggestions. We think most of them would be worse than Thomas.
