    Isn't he coaching in the US? Did he get banned from coaching in Canada or something?
    I don't know.. maybe Lloyd and Morozov should coach together?

    There was something about him in the USFSA magazine about a year ago. He was going to compete in pairs at adult nationals with another coach. I can't remember what they said about his personal life.

    They planned to, but he injured his shoulder (and I think needed surgery) so they were unable to compete last year. Haven't heard if they are planning to compete this year.

    Eisler was banned from coaching in Canada for sending sexually explicit messages to a 15-year-old student. Here are some of the news stories about the one-year coaching ban:

    Eisler subsequently had an affair in 2006 with Kristy Swanson on the Skating With Celebrities TV show, while his wife was 8 months pregnant, married Swanson, and now has a 2-year-old son. He is coaching at the Pickwick Ice Area in Burbank, CA.

    All of this is well-publicized.

    WHAT!? Why would the US federation allow him to coach, either?

    I'm surprised he and Kristi are still together.

    The background check USFSA requires only considers criminal convictions and arrests/pending trials. I don't believe Eisler was ever arrested; I think it was an internal investigation by Skate Canada. So that is not something that would be on his 'permanent record'.

    I'm disappointed that he turned out like that. I always enjoyed his and Isabelle's skating.

    He was recovering after his surgery pretty well, but then she injured her hip and had to have her own surgery. The dangers of pairs skating in your 40's!! :eek:

    He recently joined the new owners of the Valley Ice Center in Panorama City, CA, as director of the skating school. Previous director dropped when Eisler came on the radar screen of the new owners - sort of unfair to her. Will be interesting to see if parents object, given his "character" issues. Meanwhile, it seems like a weird move for him, given that the VIC appears to be significantly increasing its focus on hockey.
