This sort of hiding from the media and refusing to answer questions by a top coach wouldn't be tolerated in any other sport.
He wasn't at World Champs. He didn't give interviews at Boston -- Pete Julian served as his mouthpiece. He hasn't addressed the leaked USADA report, which came out in the spring. He's been MIA at track meets where Oregon Project athletes have competed. Heck, he's not even in the Galen Rupp Workout Wednesday video from June 2017 after the Portland Track Festival. He used to be practically ON TOP of Rupp in workout videos.
Gault, you should track him down in Chicago and ask him the tough questions. He's been a downright embarrassment to the sport.
