"Hank Haney and I have agreed that he will no longer be my coach. Hank is an outstanding teacher and has been a great help to me, but equally importantly he is a friend. That will not change.
"I would like to thank him for all he has done for me the past six years."
Rumors continue to swirl about the possibility Woods is planning to work with Orlando-based Sean Foley, whose clients include Sean O'Hair and Hunter Mahan. On Sunday, before Haney's resignation, Lorne Rubinstein of the Globe and Mail posted a friend-of-a-friend update on that rumor. Rubinstein writes about the stack-and-tilt guys, Michael Bennett and Andy Plummer, who are friends of Foley's, and what one of them might have said: "A source told me that Bennett said ... that Foley was going to announce within a couple week that he'd be working with Woods."
Personally, I think Tiger should blow everybody's mind and hire Phil Mickelson's former teacher, Rick Smith. Then Smith, fired by Mickelson, would be Woods' coach. And Butch Harmon, fired by Tiger, would be Mickelson's coach.
