Thomas will remain head coach at Florida International University while engaging in this part-time role. I'm still confused as to why you'd rehire the man whose actions Donnie Walsh just spent two years trying to completely undo, and still came up slightly short, but, I am not James Dolan.

On the plus side, this would seem to remove Thomas from the running currently vacant General Manager position.
