Of course he should stick with that coach. When you have that kind of success and a sensible program you should stick with it. U of O would have been a bad move for him. Not many young guys have the attitude to do what he is doing.
2 of the 5 on that list stuck with their HS coach (Rupp and Hunter)
The other three changed coaches
Ryun and Fernandez never ran faster at 3000m, than they did as juniors
Fisher has not either, but he has yet to run this year.[/quote]
Dumb comparison. You must really be a Hunter fan or his mother.
I wonder how many 3000 m Ryan and Fernandez raced? Not many I suspect.
If they had and if your facts are correct, Ryan would have easily ran faster.
Fisher has run one, when he was 18, won the race and went 7:50. 9 seconds faster than Hunter did the same year.
