Mao Asada Names New Coach

New, 3 comments

Mao Asada has named a new coach - Nobuo Sato, according to Universal Sports.  Sato is the father and former coach of Yuka Sato, and the coach of Takahiko Kozuka.  If Asada picks up anything by just sharing a coach with Kozuka, then this move will have already been worth it.  I think Sato is a good choice and fits Asada's bill of wanting to stay in Japan - and have a coach who's actually around!  Also, it gets rid of the question of Brian Orser coaching Asada, so no more scandals on that front.
