Some quotes from a japanese article (http://www.nikkansports.com/sports/news/f-sp-tp0-20120615-968059.html):

Takahashi have Morozov as one of his coaches as an adviser.
Morozov approached him before this year's world championships.

Takahashi said:
I have only two years before the Sochi Olympics.
I have hesitated over accepting his offer but I decided because I think he will offer me good advice for the Olympics.

Morozov said:
Daisuke was my favorite skater I have ever trained.
I felt sorry about the way I split with Daisuke and I have many regrets.
In the past he was one of the great skaters but he is now memorable.
I am no match for him without my improvement.
I do enjoy Morosov eating crow...

I did not see this coming at all. I just really really hope he won't be doing Morozov choreography for his programs. Dai has been nothing but original since he started working with Camerlengo and other choreographers. Does this mean we won't see Dai do any of Kenji's choreography again? I wish the articles said something about choreo.

Sigh, I think I'm just going to find a corner and :wuzrobbed now.

Dai himself's decision(after all) and Morozov's drive for Dai OG and his role as advisor(just?) all look a little weird. lol

Hmm, so, doesn't Morozov want Plush to win OGM? :lol:

But then again, he already coached Arakawa to win OGM over Slutskaya so it's not a big deal for him it seems. ;)

OMG I totally forgot about Florent. Is he still under Morozov's tutelage?

Yes, according to this link that was posted in the Russian skating news thread yesterday:

Here's the list of Morozov's students. Takahashi, P|G [Pushkash/Guerreiro] are among them.

ETA: Is Morozov's role clearly stated in the Japanese articles as being Takahashi's primary coach or an advisor? Does this mean Utako Nagamitsu will continue to coach him and we should expect to see her in the Kiss and Cry?

Who wouldn't want to coach the most brilliant skater in the world?

If Morozov brings something to the table that Dai wants, no objections from me.

Technically yes, he's joint coached by Morozov and Bernard Glesser, but as far as I know, he was only in NJ with Morozov's group for a week this summer, and has been in France since he finished AOI Shanghai. It'll be really interesting to see how this all shakes out.

So much for Russian coaches not being able to work with foreign students.

I guess Morozov is special and those restrictions don't apply to him. :P

Or maybe the fact that he only consults Amodio and Morozov (who retain their primary coaches) means he can get round that.

My recollection may be faulty, but I think that when Morozov moved back to Russia, there was something posted here to the effect that he said that not only could he keep his existing foreign students but that the door was left open to coaching others.

Also, according to the smatterings of Leonova's blog posted elsewhere on this board, he is in New Jersey at the moment. Maybe he's planning on staying there.

Maybe you're remembering this interview from last summer?

I want Dai to win the OGM so whatever it takes....as long as Oily Nicky doesn't touch him. If there is fondling in the K&C I suggest a bunch of FSU get together & :lynch:.
