RE: Pat Casey Leaving Montana State for Oklahoma!
Pat is a great runner and a good person... to argue that he is being "100% self centered" is basically a give away that you don't know him. And Dale Kennedy is the salt of the freaking earth. He would never hold a runner back if they wanted to make a change, for any reason. Dale is in coaching for all of the right reasons, and he is a great role model in life.
He is also an excellent coach. Let us not forget that Pat didn't break 4:20 in high school, but he broke 4:00 after 2.5 years training with Kennedy. A lot of runners who were not recruited by bigger programs have gone close to 4 minutes in Kennedy's program: Mike Fiest, Miguel Galeana, Lyle Weese, Kevin Clary, Ned Miller, to name a few. He has an impressive, sustained record of developing unknown 4:25 milers that no one else recruited.
Best of luck to Pat and Dale... they are both going to keep on doing good things.
