Replacing the switches with hubs is a great way to increase throughput as long as your resources are located on the switch.  Your problem is going to be the 10M Thick Ethernet cable.  Once a user needs to go outside the switch, he/she is going to be constrained by that segment.  

Thick Ethernet was a great idea in its day, but that day was over 10+ years ago.  You may want to consider your first upgrade to get rid of it.  You want your backbone to be at least as fast as the connectivity to your users.  Maybe collapse the backbone to a gigabit switch with fiber runs down to switches.  Connect to users with 100M Etherent using cat 5 UTP.  

Since you don't really spell out how many users, servers, location of servers, and most important - budget, it's kind of hard to suggest a topology.

your going to be bottlenecked by your slowest link... 10mbps

the aui is going to be limited by the transcievers speed, so if its 10mb then youll be running a 10mb connection fom the transciever to the hubs... youll need to upgrade your transcievers as thicknet has the capacity for that bandwidth.
