Bad Sign for a New Hire

Even if you don’t follow basketball, you may have heard the news that native Chicagoan and former NBA superstar Isiah Thomas has been hired as the men’s basketball coach at Florida International University. I could, by the way, use a great many terms other than the preceding to describe Thomas – his life and career have had quite a series of ups and downs in recent years, but I will leave it at that.

On Wednesday of this week, Ron Berkman, provost of Florida International University, introduced the school’s new coach to the media with these words:

“I’m glad to welcome you all and to welcome Isiah Thompson as FIU’s basketball coach.”

Not a good sign.
