Rick Sanchez Back in Miami to Call FIU Games

Cue the dramatic music and breaking news graphic. Rick Sanchez is back in South Florida.

The controversial former local news anchor with a flair for the overdramatic that landed him on CNN is reportedly lending his voice to Florida International University football games this fall.

FIU's athletic department confirmed Sanchez will be in the radio booth during games this season, but did not release how much he will be paid or for how long he will call games.

Sanchez was fired by CNN in October after some controversial comments he made about The Daily Show host Jon Stewart and his employer. 

But FIU hasn't let controversy stop it from hiring a big name with equally large baggage in the name of ratings.

Now Sanchez is back in the pond he started at, swimming with the likes of other former big fish like Isiah Thomas.
