Andy Roddick may be considering working with a controversial coach who has Grand Slam credentials. It has been reported that a new coach may be added to Roddick's roster, not to replace current coach Dean Goldfine, but to supplement Goldfine's input.

The candidate?

Jim Pierce, Mary's controversial father, who many credit for his daughter's resurgence that has resulted in trips to the French Open and U.S. Open finals and a return to the top five in the WTA Tour rankings for the first time since 2000.

Jim Pierce's role would be as a coach's coach to advise on big match strategy and to expand on Roddick's game, which is built around a big forehand and a bigger serve.
