Isiah Thomas To Be Named FIU Basketball Coach

I'm always fascinated about the psyche of the most successful people, especially what keeps them going when tough times arise. Isiah Thomas, has had more success than one can imagine in his life: College and Professional championships; Hall of Fame basketball career and countless other accolades. However the last few years have been pretty rough on Mr. Thomas, specifically his tenure with the New York Knicks of the NBA. Isiah's failure with the Knicks can almost be seen as catastrophic, but "Zeke" is apparently ready to rise above the recent misfortunes and will be named head basketball coach at Florida International University according to the Miami Herald.

If this story is true, Isiah will be taking on a major challenge, as the team had a record of 13-20 last year. Good to see Isiah getting up and resuming his career in basketball.

The Knicks were so screwed up that Thomas worth as a coach cannot fairly be evaluated from that experience. Larry Brown didn't do well there either. And he is a good coach. I think he'll do fine in this new job.
