Wow - no wonder David Santee looked so happy last week.

Didn't see this one coming, although I suspect it would make just about the entire forum happy if the other thread was any indication.

This makes me very happy. I hope it is a good move for her.

Well you can't deny the success she had under Tom Z, but I'm glad she made the switch.

The same press release is up on the USFS site now: http://www.usfsa.org/Story.asp?id=46208&type=media

"Agnes and I have always had great chemistry," [David] Santee said. "I'm happy she has chosen to continue her career with me."

Christy Krall will assist Santee with day-to-day training while Zawadzki trains in Colorado Springs.
So it sounds like Santee, who's still based in the Chicago area, will travel with Zawadzki to her competitions if Krall is unavailable. I believe Joshua Farris has a similar arrangement -- training with Krall and Damon Allen in Colorado Springs and Allen being his travel coach as needed.

Why would she list her main coach as David Santee if she's going to spend most of her time training with Krall in Colorado Springs?

I'm thrilled to hear she's left Tom Z, though!

If that is the case, wouldn't it have been more accurate to say that Zawadzki was switching to Christy Krall with assistance from her old coach David Santee?

I think the arrangement works for Joshua Farris because both of his coaches are based in Colorado Springs, but with David Santee still in Chicago I have to think he will be more than just a travel coach as needed.

I was thinking Zawadzki was moving back to Chicago and keeping Krall as a technical specialist who she will see off and on in Colorado Springs for help throughout the season?

I probably shouldn't have typed "travel coach as needed" for David Santee as the USFS press release does state that he will be Zawadzki's primary coach. It sounds like a rather unusual arrangement, with Zawadzki staying in Colorado Springs, so it'll be interesting to see how it works out for her this season.
