Orlandus Thomas is a well-known and respected high school basketball coach in Chicago and equally known for helping many area students attend college through his showcases, exposure events and AAU program.

Prior to arriving at IIT, Thomas has served as an assistant coach at both Crete-Monee High School and Lincoln Park High School, before becoming a head coach at Noble Street College Prep and Gary Comer College Prep.  It was at Gary Comer where he started his own Martin Luther King tournament, and built a program from the ground up. Thomas also founded his own AAU program, The Windy City Spartans, where all of his players have either graduated with college degrees or currently on track to graduating. Thomas has also hosted exposure showcases that have helped many student athletes receive scholarships into college.

Thomas also started his own non-profit organization, Change for the Better, a community service program designed to show communities how to establish healthier habits and lead a healthier lifestyle. Thomas received his B.A. in Physical Education from Chicago State University in 2006, and is currently the physical education/health teacher at Gary Comer College Prep.
