I went back to listen to what he actually said in the two video interviews and the press release from April. In both interviews he seemed to correct the interviewer every time they suggested it was a coaching change and called it "position change" How did I miss that the first time?

'It is more of a position change than a coaching change"

"It's more of a position switch than it is a change"

April 1, 2011 USFS Press Release Quote:
"At this time I need a change in the way I've been training," Rippon said. "I've been working with Ghislain for more than two years, so the transition is natural and makes sense."

If he was already working with Ghislain, then Adam is correct in saying it wasn't so much a coaching change as it was a position change (naming an "assistant coach" as his new head coach). I think if Adam had originally intended on just working with Ghislain temporarily, he would have said something like, "While I am in the process of looking for a new coach, I will continue working with Ghislain." Of course, I could be wrong.

This is a very logical move to me. In hindsight, this change to another coach within his old rink seems to have been only temporary until he found someone. It would have been very tense for Adam to remain in the old rink even though he had "switched" coaches there. I think this coaching assignment will help Adam tremendously. I've always liked his programs, but have to look at how much Alissa improved there, so expect the same. As with her, I also foresee for Adam some assistance with nerves and confidence.

Wow. How many skaters do they have there, I would say the stable might be full now.

Off the top of my head: Abbott, Czisny, Rippon, Alexe Gilles, Becky Bereswill.

Adam may have intended to stay and perhaps it turned awkward, or he might have been intending to switch all along and perhaps everyone knew that. Or maybe it just came up while he was working with Carmelengo on choreo.

In any event, I love Adam and really hope this next season is a great one for him.

GK- Me too! I think any or a mixture of your ideas could be right. Hope all barbers in Detroit go on strike and he lets the curls grow! :lol:

Rippon tweeted this photo yesterday of him standing with Shizuka Arakawa, Kiira Korpi, and Shae-Lynn Bourne (who is choreographing his SP): http://twitpic.com/5bmifx

I'm thrilled to hear this news! When Adam left Brian, I was hoping he'd swich to Yuka/Jason team. I think their calmness would help Adam to focus better. Plus, DSC has an amazing training facility. Good luck to Adam!!

I think they'll push each other and that will help them get better.

Jeremy and Adam really seem to get along very well and have a friendly rivalry, much different from Evan and Johnny who take turns seeing who can be the biggest diva bitch. :2faced:
