The rumors are now officially true Alan Webb will be coached by Jason Vigilante at the University of Virginia.
Full story here:
I sure hope none of Webb's savvy "racing experience" rubs off on Robbie Andrews.
This will be great for both of them, Andrews can use some of the racing experience Webb has and it will certainly improve a lot, and Webb will benefit from training with MD guys again, and fast ones, it's a win win.
What makes you pull something like this out of your ass?

Seems like Webb needs to be the big man of the program in order to be happy. Probably didn't like being one of many stars in Oregon and didn't want to go with train with Manzano or the other half of OTC for the same reason. But, he has picked a great coach and will have no excuses if he can't get it done at US trials again.
Frankly, I think the big fish/small pond won't work anymore. I also think it is just a way for Webb to put his head in the sand during training instead of having to bring it every day with a group that has tons of talent like both halves of OTC.
