American mile-record-holder Alan Webb will move to Portland, Ore., to train with Alberto Salazar's training group Nike Portland, according to a source close to the situation.
The Reston resident has been training in Northern Virginia since his youth, except for one year at the University of Michigan after he graduated from South Lakes High in 2001.
He's been working with high school coach Scott Raczko since his years at South Lakes, and it is believed Raczko will have some role in his coaching.
Webb set the American record in the mile two years ago in Belgium, running a 3:46.91 at the Atletiek Vlaanderenmeet.
But he has struggled since; he failed to qualify for the Beijing Olympics in the 1,500 meters, finishing fifth at the U.S. Olympic Trials. Then in June, Webb injured his hamstring and achilles, forcing him to withdraw from the final of the 1,500 meters at the USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships.
