Excerpt: How long do you think you will continue to coach?

Nicks: Well, at my age, I don't have any long-term plans anymore. I will sit down after worlds and decide. I am sort of leaning toward finishing this year. Really, with Ashley one year away from the Olympic Winter Games?

Nicks: Well, I've coached 11 Olympics. Dating back to 1968, I think I missed maybe two or three. If I feel someone could do a better job, I think she would deserve that. I would continue to give her some lessons if she'd want, and I'd support her, but I'm pretty seriously looking into this year being my last. I've committed to her through this year. I used to have four- or six-year contracts, but I don't do that anymore.
ETA: I see that another thread was started on the same topic.
