Isiah Thomas on the Hot Seat at FIU?

Saw an article on ESPN Insider basically saying that Thomas is on the hot seat. Taking over a team that had lost 20 games in 2009 and hasn't had a winning season since 2000, Thomas' performance has been sub par thus far.

Here's a side by side comparison of what Jarvis has done at FAU and what Thomas has done at FIU

Jarvis:                                              Isiah Thomas:

2008-2009 - 6-26                          2009-2010 - 7-25
2009-2010 - 14-16                        2010-2011 - 11-19
2010-2011 - 21-11                        2011-2012 - 3-7
2011-2012 - 4-6
———————-                 ———————–
45-59 Overall                               21-51 Overall


So Thomas has nearly as many losses as Jarvis does and he's coached at FIU 1 less season. I think he's a great recruiter, but a terrible coach. They gave Maryland a hell of a scare last night. With a good coach, they would've won that game

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

Sign me up for MJ ANY day of the week over Thomas…too much baggage. Says weird things publically…

And, most importantly: Not a winning coach.

As noted above, the records speak for themselves…….

As does tying the Nicks worst season (59 losses).

Exactly. I would have no faith in that guy whatsoever.

He was ready to bolt for the Knicks as soon as the opportunity came along. He went back to FIU after the NBA and NCAA said not so fast my friend.

They should fire him, I bet a new coach could come in there and do a great job with the recruits he's brought in. Great players don't always make great coaches. Ask Magic Johnson and Wayne Gretzky. Very rare to find a player who's in the HOF in any sport as a player and as a coach. According to Wikipedia there's 3 members of the Basketball HOF who are in there as both a player and a coach:

John Wooden, Bill Sharman, and Lenny Wilkens

I think they should keep him. Give him a raise! That way they could stink up the place even more and we can spank them again…Can't stand FIU.

-Go Owls!
