This story (http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/sports/world-champ-patrick-chan-shakes-up-coaching-team-parts-ways-with-christy-krall-147616205.html) implies that this was Chan's decision - but offers no details, while this one (http://sports.yahoo.com/news/world-champ-chan-changing-coaches-175044980--oly.html) says that Krall resigned. Is this going to be a :watch:-worthy split, then? It seems kind of unusual to do such a thing, and the timing as well.

I believe this is true (Lori Ewing is a reliable journalist AFAIK) - ETA: refer to article links posted above.

Another Lori Ewing tweet:

Chan's coaching change effective immediately. Move "was with sincere best wishes to one another for the future," according to Skate Canada.

ETA link to Skate Canada's press release today (April 16): http://www.skatecanada.ca/AboutUs/NewsDetails/tabid/2157/sni[2797]/1674/language/en-US/Default.aspx

Coaching Change for Chan

OTTAWA, ON: Christy Krall and two-time World Champion Patrick Chan have concluded their coaching relationship, following Krall’s indication of her decision to resign from Chan's coaching team, which was accepted. While the two have parted ways, it was with sincere best wishes to one another for the future.

Krall, based in Colorado Springs, CO, was a valued member of the team which coached Chan to his two world championship titles in 2011 and 2012.

Chan will continue to work with Kathy Johnson, as he revamps his coaching team. He will maintain his current training base in Colorado Springs, CO with more frequent return visits to his home in Toronto, Ont.

How long has she been his primary coach? (at least in the K&C)

Over/under on the number of popcorn gifs this thread will have?

Or maybe not? I do hope she's okay and it's just irreconcilable differences - it just seems so strange for a World Champion and a coach to part ways like this.
