Matthew Centrowitz Joining Bowerman Track Club

Update (Jan. 11): Centrowitz confirmed that he has joined Bowerman Track Club on Friday:

2016 1,500m Olympic champion Matthew Centrowitz is switching from one Portland-based Nike training group to another, as LetsRun is reporting that the 29-year-old former Oregon Project star will train with the Bowerman Track Club and be coached by Jerry Schumacher.

The report cites an anonymous source, as neither Centrowitz nor Bowerman has confirmed the move. Centrowitz, who currently lives in Seattle as part of his volunteer coaching gig at the University of Washington, has been training this week in Colorado Springs with several members of the Bowerman squad.

Centrowitz had been with the Alberto Salazar-coached Nike Oregon Project for the entirety of his seven-year pro career before it was revealed in November that he was leaving the group. Given Centro’s success with Salazar throughout his career— a silver medal at Worlds in 2013 and gold medals at 2016 World indoor and the Olympic Games— his departure from the group was quite shocking at the time. 

Two months later, his decision to join Schumacher’s group is perhaps an even more shocking revelation. Salazar and Schumacher famously despise each other, and Centrowitz will become just the third athlete ever besides Kara Goucher and Alan Webb to have been coached by both men.
