Orser denies rumors he could coach Mao Asada

SEOUL, April 25 (Yonhap) -- Brian Orser, coach of Olympic figure skating gold medalist Kim Yu-na, on Sunday denied rumors that he is considering coaching Olympic runner-up Mao Asada of Japan.

In a telephone interview with Yonhap, the Canadian admitted that Asada's agent had offered him the job at the World Championships last month, where the Japanese figure skater reclaimed her world title from Kim, the 2009 champion.

But Orser, who has coached Kim since 2006, said that he is not considering coaching Asada and that he is devoted to Kim.
