    Gee, I had no idea her mom is a professional coach.
    I also had no idea her mom had prior business experience. But that didn't stop her from forming her own sports agency did it?

    If she can't find a competent coach in North America, maybe she can consider someone in China? Shen/Zhao canceled Japan Open and are going to her LA show right?

    Can you imagine how much traffic there would on this forum if Shen/Zhao agreed to be Yuna's coach?!

    (I'm just kidding, okay?)

    ANY coach will only be in name only.... Mama will ALWAYS be her REAL coach!!!

    I doubt Frank would take her given the rep about her Mama being a drama queen. I've met Frank once at a competition a few years back and he comes off very no-nonsense type of guy! I also just met Mr. Nicks this weekend and he's a REALLY nice fella... but pretty sharp guy for a old guy... (He had two Jr. level students at my local competition this weekend and well, obvious, they won...)

    Boitano is too busy cooking to do any full-time coaching... And I doubt she would go with someone from China, never mind JAPAN!!! Too much tension between the countries...

    If she's going the Russian factor, maybe Morozov??? (Then again, her training mate, Adam Rippon, used to be coached by Morozov too and well, he left Morozov for Orser...)

    Maybe Plushy for the porn factor? Didn't she give Plushy a kiss on the cheek or something? She can go explore that "schoolgirl crush" some more.

    Seriously, if only Elena T. was still alive

    But Arutunian is probably the best bet. He is based in LA (Lake Arrowhead?) and they can train at Michelle's rink if they want to. (right?)

    Ummm, you are talking about the Japanese gilrl whose mother died in Vancouver right?
    IIRC, it was her who was kissing up to Plushy.

    I can see Yuna training with Galina Zmievskaya and Victor Petrenko.

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    Hope they do the same for Yu Na as they did for Johnny Weir

    ----------------------
    . . . actually I take that back. LORD FORGIVE ME. I would not wish Galina and Viktor on anybody. It is too hard to watch a once beautiful fluid skater retire barely able to skate with a completely lifeless expression on the ice, as if everything he knew how to do right was purposely destroy even if it was just that they did not know WTF they were doing.

    "* YNK and Asada will coach each other"???
    I feel Asada should pay coaching fee to YNK!

    Only one of these choices specifically MAJORED in Yu-Na, so I feel the others are just rank amateurs.

    No way. She and mom Kim would kill each other.

    Whoever agrees to coach her, should demand big bucks and written contract with stated conditions of termination as enough incentive to deal with this.

    Too bad, even if she finds a good coach I don't think it will be ever the same special relationship with the whole team standing behind her in the most difficult moments. Yes, she is a great skater on her own but I don't think she would achieve such a level of perfection (or close to it) in the hardest moment of her career without them. The comfort zone is neccessary and new rules will work against her although she would probably continue to win medals anyway.

    She is not in an easy situation, thrown between her mother, her coaches, her often creepy fans and her sponsors and all have expectations. No wonder she is confused being in an uncertain point of her career. I hope if she competes it's because she really wants it and joy of skating won't be lost. They are putting enourmous emotional strain on her. There is a reason most Olympic champions retire and they even didn't have quite the same status in their countries. Everybody says what she should do, but I don’t know if anybody asked what she wants to do. I enjoy her skating in competition but it would be nice if she can have some break, go to school to learn good English, meet people, socialize, have a bit of normal life. Is few more millions worth it?

    I feel sorry for Brian too. He deserves much better than this. But he has his own life and other students, he doesn't live in golden cage. I don't doubt that he cares about his best student.

    Mao Asada kissed Plushenko, not Yu-Na. So if Mao decides to train with Orser, Yu-Na definitely should choose Plushy.
    Morozov it´s perfect too for the porn factor, but I belive that Mama Kim knows how much he likes young and beautiful girls (or Yu-Na is already too old for him?).

    Heaven forbid that it would be the mother! Or TAT - dear Lord, not TAT, who would 'kill' Yu-Na's light and musical manner!!! It may be a big unmentioned surprised, such as Annik of France. Everybody assumes that it will be a North American or a Russian. I don't think so.

    There seems to be some speculation that the new coach would be someone not so well known as a coach, like what Orser was 4 years ago. I don't see Yuna getting along with TAT at all.
