Oh MY GOD! But then we are talking about the Clippers.

If this happens all those big time FIU commits will be long gone. Maybe Coach Jarvis can pick up the best big man for us!

Is Isiah Leaving FIU

Just read a report on Fox Sports that Isiah has been contacted by the L.A. Clippers to take over as coach, general manager and president.† I guess they dont remember what he did to the Knicks.

Pete claims "no".

"I'm very happy here at FIU. We have a great recruiting class coming in next year. One of the best recruiting classes in the school's history. My 2011 class I hope that's even better. I think we have a chance to build something really special here. I love what I'm doing. I love being in between the four lines. I love coaching."

Can someone pull the Doherty quotes? Or what about Nick Saban?

This is nothing against FIU, but it's the nature of the game, everyone wants to prove that they've got what it takes to shine on the big stage so I'd be more shocked if he turned down an offer at LA. You have to have an ego to be as good as Thomas was (as a player) in the NBA and you'd be crazy to think that he doesn't want to turn around his reputation for his previous transgressions as a coach.

If the offer is legit, he's gone. I want him to be because he is a fine recruiter that will cause us more problems in the coming years. What can I do to help???† :)
