    OUCH!

    Kudos to them, hitting Slimy where it hurts. :D

    On a more serious note, being at the level they are, I'd choose a coach who had more results and was less of a gamble.

    P.S. Anybody knows how that lawsuit ended?

    So the Reeds are coming back to Hackensack, or has Chait relocated to somewhere else?

    Hmmm, maybe Nikolai was too busy with Miki, Flo, and Javier. But best of luck to the Reeds. I would love to see them move up this season.

    Is it common for someone to coach both singles and dance, at least at the senior level? I can't imagine what he knows about dance but maybe I know a lot less about Morozov than I thought.

    Morozov IS an ice dancer. He competed with Diva Navka before she teamed up with Kostomarov and they went to Nagano Olympics (they placed 16th there).

    Tarasova and Tchaikovskaya did both successfully for awhile. Zhulin also, to some extent.

    AFAIK, Morosov doesn't often work with students who are still learning jumps and developing their technique. With singles skaters he usually takes on advanced students, and does more of a "final polish" like Tarasova, giving them choreography, style, etc. He used to have a bigger dance program with teams at different levels/stages in their careers but that has dwindled in the past few years.

    Getting away from Morozov = excellent idea.

    Going to Chait = maybe not such a good idea, especially after all the drama last year about how the Zars were treated. Yes, I know the Reeds aren't competing for Israel, but no matter how good a coach Chait is, the Reeds might be treated less than favourably because they're working with her - and when they're not exactly the top ranked dance couple in the world, that could have a fairly substantial impact on their progress.

    Does it really matter who coach them?

    He must be working with some jump coaches.

    No it doesn't. Obviously all coaches are the same and there are no differences whatsoever. :huh:

    She didn't handle Zaretskis well, made some bad decisions and then there was massive drama with the federation and them bitching at each other.

    Knowing that, I'm surprised a team at such a crucial stage in their career, with a potential to climb up the rankings in a post-Olympic season, would willingly choose to train with her.

    Could it be that the Reeds wanted to return to NJ? That's where their family is, yes?

    What an astonishing revelation! Could it be just that simple? Oh, this is skating, there must be more to it than that.:EVILLE:

    They all come back. They always come back. The armpit of the nation is too powerful to resist.

    I'm assuming that had a lot to do with. After the kerfuffle with the Zaretskis last year, I would think she would be a hard sell coaching choice. Maybe they feel they can work well with her.

    I wonder why they didn't choose Platov?

    I wondered that too since their sister trains with him.

    Maybe the Reed sister didn't think training together and sharing a coach would work for them.

    I question that, as the two sisters seem to like skating together.

    I suspect that they may well have wanted to return to NJ because their family is there. And they know so many people at the Ice House, they may have felt more comfortable there after the months of drifting around with Morozov.

    Part of Team Morozov is Stanislav Leonovich, who serves as jump coach. Reports are he is excellent.

    Just to throw in something else, the FSU thread, "Vaitsehovskaya's interview with Morozov," may give some additional hint about why the Reeds went back to the Ice House. In that interview, Morozov seems indefinite about where he will be training in the future, and in that context talks about his daughter. He may well be planning to return to Hackensack. Certainly, people working with Morozov at the Ice House said that he would come back. The Reeds may be waiting for him.

    Obviously, yep. :)

    Oooh I didn't realise that he's not in Paris any more and that he's in Moscow with Morozov now. Thanks for this info!

    He worked with a number of Polish skaters and I heard only good things about him. :)

    For the sake of clarity, I don't know that Leonovich is still with Morozov in Europe. I know Leonovich had worked in France several years ago and spoke a respectable yeoman's French.

    On Russian FSO I've read that it was mutual decision of Reeds and Morozov. Nikolai does not have enough time for them now.
    Some years ago Galit was Reed's coach as she was a second coach in Morozov Team.
    Zadorozhnuk/Verbillo once said very kind words about Chait, about her attention to students and diligence.
