I'm not sure how I feel about this. I didn't see this coming. Hopefully, they can teach him how to race because that is his only problem. He is very talented, but just does a lot of stupid things when he runs ( see the indoor WC).
No way hell will Al train him. There is just too much going right now with Hassan and Yomif. The marathon season is done for Galen and Hasay. But Hassan has the European Cross Country circuit, plus indoor track season. Same for Yomif. Plus Murphy and Centro have indoors coming up .
Brazier will probably train with Engels, and run with Murphy and Centro every now and then.
While hasay and rupp didn't have a good year this year, the track based athletes did great this year under AL.
Notice how NOP is trying to clean up its image.
