Isiah on his way out?

From the Bergen County Record:

Isiah, who sat with Pistons GM Joe Dumars at a game last week, is going to end up in Detroit in some capacity.

Beleaguered coach John Kuester is only hanging on by his kiester because the teamís about to be sold and current ownership doesnít want to financially rock the boat of a diminished franchise.

Isiah (who had a falling out with current ownership that will disappear post-sale, presumably) could also work with Dumars in the front office, if he doesnít (and we donít put this beyond him) replace an exec whoís clearly lost his fastball.

Once it becomes official that he's leaving maybe we can convince some of their top recruits to come play for a winner.
I'm sure FIU will try and make a big splash hire or maybe go the other route with an assistant from a top program looking go get his 1st coaching job.

It is so important to keep Jarvis here! I hope the administration knows that and can work out some kind of extension with him

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

I like our recruits much better than IT's.† I hope he stays because I do not want them to go after someone that can actually coach.† The longer IT stays at FIU, the better for us.† Great player.† Horrible manager of the game.†

They have a few guys who are like top 50 according to ESPN. I like our guys better but adding a guy who's top 50 certainly won't hurt

A few interesting tidbits in this recent Palm Beach Post Commentary, including:


"I like the challenge. I like teaching. I like the kids. As long as I'm in a gym doing what I love to do, I'm good."

So, he's in for the duration of his five-year deal?

"I don't think that's fair to ask anyone,"
Thomas said. "I like where I am right now. I like living in Florida. But if I say I'm going to be here and then I don't stay, it's 'He's a bum.' "

Kind of defeats the purpose of a 'contract' but FIU knew what they were getting into.

I cannot imagine that this would be a surprise to many.
