According to his ISU bio, Bauer and Krall co-coach him:
His statement on his fan club site is:
My primary coach, Lorna Bauer, first taught me when I was 9 and has been my primary coach every step of the way.
I currently represent the Vancouver Skating Club. Our primary training facilities are the Agrodome at the PNE, as well as Canlan ice sports in north Vancouver.
For part of the year I train in Colorado Springs, Colorado, among many high level skaters.
Christy Krall, Damon Allen and Eric Shultz coach me while I am down there.

A local article in November on Liam mentioned his move to Co Springs..
He is the only one at Colorado Springs who made the Olympics...who could have predicted that!
This skating season has also brought about a coaching change for Firus, who first took to the ice when he was eight years old. He started taking lessons at the Vancouver Skating Club, with the intention of becoming a stronger hockey player.
Instead, he developed a strong desire to glide on the ice and attempt those impressive acts of dexterity.
With Lorna Bauer as his coach, Firus moved up the ranks in the realm of figure skating. In 2010, the same year the Winter Olympics were held in his backyard, Firus took the Canadian junior title.
Now an Olympic hopeful himself, Firus has started training with U.S. champion figure skater Christy Krall in Colorado Springs. Krall has coached celebrated Canadian figure skater and three-time world champion Patrick Chan.
What a sweet thread, Gingercat! All new Olympic coaches well deserved!
Love this thread! Thanks!
Kathy Johnson - Patrick Chan's current coach. (Perhaps, I should not have mentioned her, because some don't consider her to be a real coach. )
I definitely would like to remark on Ravi Wallia and the excellent job he has done with Kaetlyn. This past year must have been difficult, but he made sure she was healed before sending her out to compete. Ravi is just awesome, IMHO.
