Universal Sports is first to publish the USFS press release (I've removed the non-working Twitter link that I posted here originally) -- this link works:

link doesn't work...

is this just a post-Orser announcement, or a new change? I thought Rippon was going to stay in Canada with one of his (previous) secondary coaches?

A new change. He thanked Brand (?) for his help during the "transition period."

The link worked for me. The article is dated June 15. Here is the link again - perhaps it will work now.

thanks mag, your link works for me.

Interesting that Adam and Jeremy will be training together (albeit Jeremy with Yuka and Adam with Jason)

This is probably the most "zen" situation that Adam could hope for! So excited for him! He deserves a break! :)

So excited for him! He deserves a break! :) Why does Rippon deserve a break? I sure hope that he will fare better in next season, but that remains to be seen.

I would counter with, why doesn't anyone deserve a break? IMO, I just think and believe so.

I'm glad to hear this.
I'll look forward to his progress, with a great season ahead

IMO, Adam was caught up in Brian Orser's "post Yu-Na fallout".
What looked to be a "good fit", with "ideal" potential, wasn't.

I'm happy that Adam has re-grouped; and is moving forward.

So now Jason and Yuka are separate coaching entities? You can pick just one? Hmm.

I guess things didn't work out with staying in Toronto. Adam can try to rewrite history, but I don't think he said anything about Brand only being a temporary, transitional coach when he switched to him a few months ago.

Jason is the secondary coach for Alisa and Jeremy. This arrangement would indicate to me that there is no conflict of interest in the training of Jeremy and Adam by the same coaching team. That's all.

...the hell?! Not a comment on my opinion on this move per se (other than it seemingly coming from nowhere), but this post-season seems to be getting stranger and stranger... :shuffle:

Here's wishing Adam great success in this move! Detroit Skating Club is a wonderful training environment.

I want to see Angel Boy with his curls and in the zone this season. With Jason guiding him he will reach new goals.

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'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."
