A-Rod snags Larry Stefanki as new head coach

Thanks to an anonymous DtL reader of tipping me off to more Andy Roddick news!

The American baller has just announced Larry Stefanki will be his new coach.

A-Rod, who ended his coaching relationship with brother John this summer, had mentioned after withdrawing from the Masters Cup that there was "a short list" of potential coaches and he would decide in the coming weeks.

Stefanki last worked with Fernando Gonzalez who he helped reach the Aussie Open final last year and also coached Marcelo Rios and Yevgeny Kafelnikov to world No.1.

I'm taking the wait and see approach to this news. Obviously, a new voice and perspective could be very beneficial at this point in A-Rod's career and Stefanki is loaded with great experience. But I've always said the American's issues begin and end in his head so we'll see how this relationship plays out.
