Gracie Gold has a new coach, and a legendary one at that.

The figure skater announced Wednesday that she has been training with Frank Carroll, who helped Evan Lysacek win gold at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and Michelle Kwan take home worlds titles.

"I'm happy to be working with Frank Carroll," Gold said in a statement released by U.S. Figure Skating. "He's a wonderful coach. I'm grateful for this opportunity and I am looking forward to the future."

Gold's previous coach was Alex Ouriashev, but the two parted ways in August.

"I am excited to be coaching Gracie," Carroll said in a statement. "We have been working together for about a week now and I feel like we are a good student-coach match. I'm looking forward to the progress she will continue to make as an athlete."

Gold, who won the silver medal in this year's U.S. Championships, will next compete at next month's Skate Canada International and the 2013 NHK Trophy event in November.
