Who should coach multi-event athletes?

Let the Professionals Handle It

If you want to do the multi events (the pentathlon, heptathlon, or decathlon), or have your athletes compete in them, would you do all of the event coaching yourself, regardless of your event specialty, or would you have the athlete split their time with more specialized coaches?

If the head coach or primary coach or can coordinate schedules for the athlete and the other coaches, it is best to allow the multi event athletes to be exposed to a range of specific coaching and varied coaching styles. For instance, wouldn't it be best for a high jump coach to teach the athletes to jump rather than have the discus coaching done by the high jump coach?
