    Robin Cousins because he could teach me how to make the transition to show bizz when I could no longer jump. (I'm thinking beyond the skating career that I don't have).

    It would depend on where i was developmentally.
    Men with Jumping Issues: Kristy Krall, John Nicks, Mishin.
    Men Total package but needs help with packaging: Tarasova/Buinova, John Nicks/Tarasova or Nichol, Mushin/Zueva
    Men with artistic issues but good jumping: dunjen/sato ( they have proven ineffective IMO at fixing jumps) Any coach where Tom Dickson worked. Again, Russian coach with Tarasova assisting. I would also like to see a top male skater work with Peter Tchernechev (too lazy to sp check)

    Dance Teams...
    I would most likely go to Igor Shpilband flat out.

    Pairs:

    Moskvina- in need of minor tweeks on elements but needs big style change

    Sappenfield: Needs help with elements but strong in presentation and style ( her skaters positions, body line etc. are generally mediocre at best) but she teaches elements VERY well.

    Johnny Johns/Marina zueva

    I've always thought if I had a skater daughter she'd be packed and ready to be sent to John Nicks. You can always tell a Nicks skater. If I had a son he would start out with Mishin. If it were I, I'd go to Mark and Peter.

    I thought it was Morosov that requires his teams to go flat out. Or at least the girls

    Assuming I'd want to stay in the US

    -Singles: Mitchell& Johansson, they seems to have a good approach toward their skaters. Choreography would be Jeffrey Buttle of Stephane Lambiel.

    -Pairs: Oleg Vassiliev, Although id keep a good eye on my partner Choreography would be Peter Tchernyshev or Julie Marcotte.

    -Dance: Igor Shpiland, just for the chance to work with Skary Babs :voids: Choreography...hmm,will have to think on that one.

    Dance: Platov, but I'd use various choreographers (Dean, Rushpaul, Swan, Zhulin)

    Pairs: Steuer

    Singles: John Nicks, but with Mishin's summer jumping camp. I guess Buttle for choreography, he's the CoP codewhore master extraordinaire.

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

    From the very beginning through at least my first Olympics, I would want to learn from Frank. If I had to switch from my coach at the local mall after five or six years, I would want Krall or Orser for singles and Nicks for pairs.

    In an alternate universe, there could be worse things than ending up in Mishin's stable, even if I had little choice in the matter.

    From Mishin's stable you may actually have a chance of winning the OGM.

    Morozov of course!

    Just kidding.

    I think I'd need a grumpy old man to kick my ass into line, a kind of father figure my unruly self wouldn't mess with. That means Mishin or Carroll.
    But I want choreo by Lambiel or Buttle!

    Im pretty sure that Tatiana Tarasova taught Irina Rodnina/Alex Zaitsev and maybe Gordeeva/grinkov.

    so she must be pretty good.

    She did coach R&Z, but she only coached G&G during their pro years, I believe.

    Mark Mitchell or Ken Congemi. I wouldn't win anything with either as my coach, both are far too for me to concentrate. That's OK, I just want a coach who is
