 MIAMI (AP) -Isiah Thomas is on the verge of starting his coaching career over at Florida International.
The former New York Knicks coach is deliberating whether to take over FIU's basketball program, a person with knowledge of the school's search told The Associated Press on Monday night.
The person, speaking on condition of anonymity because university officials have not authorized anyone to reveal search details, said FIU was ``very hopeful'' that a deal could be closed with Thomas on Tuesday morning. He would replace Sergio Rouco, who was ousted after five consecutive losing seasons.
If Thomas accepts, he would be introduced in Miami on Wednesday.
Thomas became the Knicks' president in 2003, their coach in 2006 and was fired in 2008.
