    Tarasova: Alexei Yagudin with four world titles and Olympic gold.
    G and P won Olympic gold in 98 (I don't know if she was coaching them prior to that)
    Bestimionava and Bukin had three or four world titles and an Olympic gold.
    Rodnina and Zatisev won three worold titles and Olympic gold. I don't know if TT coached her with Ulanov or not.
    She was coaching Shizuka in 2004 when she won worlds as well.

    Those are the ones that I can think of off the top of my head.

    I'd have to look up some of the others that were brought up.

    Frank Carroll coached Linda Fratienne (sp?) to Nat and World gold -- and an Oly silver -- under the old 6.0 system, but when figures were still part of the equation. He coached Michelle Kwan to four of her World golds, five of her Nats golds and an Oly silver -- under 6.0, but without figures. He did wonders for Tim Goebel's artistry -- coaching him to a Nat title, Oly bronze, and two world silvers -- also under 6.0, but without figures. Finally, he has coached Evan Lysacek to a Nat gold and two world medals under the CoP.

    What makes him unique is that he is one of the few coaches who coached singles skaters to the world podium under all different judging systems.

    Great topic!

    From the past I would have to choose Carlo Fassi.

    Presently, I have to go with Frank Caroll - I chose him because most of his skaters have been with him for years. Morosov has been successful but most of his students were already very successful, but were missing something from their skating. I almost feel like he stole the skater from someone.

    I think mention should also be made of Bin Yao. He brought figure skating to China almost single-handedly and his students dominate the world pairs scene today.

    Tarasova has a position with the Russian skating federation, and I think is not "officially" working with any students at this point, but assisting in choreography for various members of the Russian team (at least, that is what I understand her position to be). I think she is still involved with Griazev, but more like a figurehead than an actual coach.
