Default Zeke fired from FIU

Quote:
Isiah Thomas arrived at Florida International knowing that he was taking a risk.

Three years later, the school didn’t see enough reward.

The Basketball Hall of Fame player was fired Friday by FIU, after his teams went 26-65 in his three seasons. His hiring came out of nowhere in 2009—“No one thought we could pull this off,” FIU director of sports and entertainment Pete Garcia proudly said at the time—and in the end, so did his firing.

FIU announced the decision in a simple three-line statement.


“We want to thank Isiah Thomas for his three years here at FIU,” Garcia said. “However, we have decided to take the program in a different direction.”

A call and text message to Thomas were not immediately returned.

“Speechless,” said DeJuan Wright, FIU’s leading scorer this past season.

“What do I do now…never felt so lost!” FIU guard Tanner Wozniak wrote on Twitter moments after the firing was announced. “Why?”

The simplest answer is that FIU didn’t win.
