And it's not former Indiana University fellow alumn and former head coach, Dan Dakich as rumors had it. But, it shows Isiah actually did offer the job to Dakich. The new assistant coach is Franklin Holloway, who according to this ESPN article, was coaching in Germany..... ... ID=4240802

• In an attempt to fill his staff, Isiah Thomas went back to Indiana and approached fellow Hoosier alumnus Dan Dakich about being on his staff at Florida International. But personally, the timing wasn't right for Dakich to leave IU. Thomas is hiring Franklin Holloway, who coached locally in South Florida after spending time coaching in Germany. FIU also picked up seldom-used 6-9 Arkansas freshman Brandon Moore. He will sit out next season and be eligible in 2010-11.
