FIU can be added to the list of teams and organizations that have fired Isiah Thomas.

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.”
