Does Michael Phelps sound more and more like a swim coach? Listen to his feedback to Ryan Lochte about the 400 IM and whether or not Ryan should race it at the 2016 U.S. Olympic Trials. Also, listen to him during Katie Ledecky‘s world record 800 meter free at the Pro Swim Series in Austin.
Phelps will be coaching at ASU with Bob Bowman after the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, as reported here:
Bowman says that Phelps is committed to being an assistant coach for the Arizona State Sun Devils for at least the 2016-2017 NCAA season.
How would the Greatest Olympian of All-Time do as a coach? Olympic stars don’t always make great coaches, but Phelps certainly has wisdom and experience to share. What do you think? Share in the comments… I think Phelps could create an incredible butterfly crew. Imagine him standing over your lane, telling you to tweak this or that, get your hips up, balance out your stroke? I’m guessing you would do it, and I’m guessing you would give it your all on repeats in butterfly… Just imagine…out loud…in the comments.
