Hart/Wariner update

If you missed the news, click here.

The Dallas Morning News reports:
Wariner is likely to remain in Waco and train under Michael Ford, a Baylor assistant and Hart protégé, according to a source. Ford, who did not return a call seeking comment, already coaches Darold Williamson, a former Baylor standout who shared gold with Wariner on the 1,600-meter relay team in Athens.
Note Williamson's distinct lack of improvement since leaving Hart.

They also tell us Hart's cut was 10% of Wariner's earnings (upwards of $1 million), and this year's offer was about 5%.

The Waco Tribune quotes Hart: “I don’t have a sign around my neck that says ‘Discount Coach.’"
and says this year's proposal came in a lengthy document from Wariner's lawyer.

Still no comment from Wariner's camp.
