Ryan Hall’s uncertain coaching situation is getting a lot of press, but his decision to leave the Mammoth Track Club has also impacted his wife.

Suddenly finding herself without a coach and unwilling to coach herself, Sara Hall, a former All-American at Stanford, has decided to return to her collegiate roots by choosing to work with Dena Evans, her college coach at Stanford.

Writing on her Facebook blog, Hall had this to say about Evans: “I felt that I would still benefit from a traditional coaching relationship, so I have decided to be coached by my college coach, Dena Evans. Dena and I have worked together successfully in the past and she knows me better than almost everyone except my immediate family.”

Hall hopes Evans can help her achieve her near-term goal: qualifying for the 2011 World Championships in Daegu, South Korea.
