It maybe a black hole for distance talent but with Shawn Wilbourn the Multis coach there he picked a school as good as any for continuing his training.
Look, you stated that the guy coaching at Duke is "as good as any" of the multi event coaches.
I am getting back to you on this as you asked, I didnt claim he has a resume that boasts tons of All-Americans but he has just started at Duke. Prior at Georgia he just started establishing some decent multis. I have known Shawn for many years and his resume will have all those All-Americans in the future that seem to imply to you that one is a good coach.
We all know the majority of getting these All-Americans is recruiting and he is finally at a program that will allow him to get these types of athletes. I would say he is starting things off pretty well by getting a HSR holder so I am sure he will do just fine. I am not saying he is the best but but no means was choosing Duke and working with Shawn a bad decision for Beach. Just like you said "so far" his resume doesnt say it but I know his coaching ability so I am sure he will be included in the top level of multis coaches over time, till then you can continue to worry about resumes and dick sizes.
Has anyone bothered to watch that video? That boy was born to run. Perfect form. High knees, everything in a straight line. He looks almost akward running the the 1500 because it seems too slow for him.

You obviously know nothing about track, do you? I guess you're just trolling now.
I applaud Beach for not being stuck in the mindset of these are the only coaches and programs that can succeed...
If you coached at Georgia you would be pretty aware of the limitations set in place by the person in charge there, maybe a reason Shawn left? At least he isn't importing all his ready made decathletes which has become embarrassing as of late....
What if Beach wanted to go to Liberty, Cal Poly, UPenn, Rutgers, UConn? All solid schools with solid deca coaches who maybe dont have the big time history....
You are obviously a hater - one post would have sufficed to get your message across.

Sadly, this year is it for the kid.
He's going to Duke next year - the notorious black hole for male track and field athletes.
Too bad, the kids got talent.
