    Based on what some people were speculating earlier...probably not.

    Theatregirl1122 mentioned Brandon above, and not to kick Tom Z while he is down, but something obviously isn't working out for Mroz. He has gone from 2nd, to 6th to 7th in the standings at US Nationals. Now is as good a time as ever for a switch.

    Who knows, with the exodus of skaters, he might just see a little more quality time. Not sure if that is a good thing.

    Unless any of them have switched recently, he coaches Brandon Mroz, Max Aaron, David Wang, Alex Johnson, McKinzie Daniels, Jessica Pfund (all Nationals competitors)...

    I understand the criticisms of Tom Z, but I wonder if this is all just mainly a coincidence. He couldn't help that Rachael has to move away for college, and when one has so many students, some are bound to end up changing coaches for all kinds of reasons.

    Great decision. Tom Z's students would be wise to all run far away.

    Who else does Christy Krall coach? I don't know her name but I'm not very up on the inside information.

    A relatively minor-level skater you might not have come across yet - Patrick Chan

    I thought Christy Ness was Kristi's coach.

    Happy to hear that Agnes has switched.

    Free Brandon!

    My bad, you are correct.

    Christy Krall was formerly Christine Haigler, who represented the US in the 1964 Olympics.

    from the article [bold mine]:

    Christy Krall will assist Santee with day-to-day training while Zawadzki trains in Colorado Springs. Krall coaches 2011 World champion Patrick Chan of Canada
    Is Agnes training in Colo Sprs. then moving? Or is Christy going to be a permanent fixture in Agnes's skating career?

    Also, I wonder what type of coach David Santee is. Never saw him in this capacity before...

    BEST news of the year!!

    I'm thrilled that she's getting away from Eville Tom Z., but even more happy that she'll be working with Christy Krall (if only part of the time).

    YAY Agnes!!

    Yay! And there's nothing better to improve your basics than to skate day in and day out with Patrick Chan.

    Looks like everyone's prayers have been answered. Congrats to Agnes and Santee on their partnership.

    Besides Patrick Chan, you mean?

    Krall recently has taken on Joshua Farris (she's listed as his primary coach, Damon Allen is Farris' secondary) and she has worked with many skaters, both in and outside of Colorado Springs, on jumps with Dartfish.
