Track body glad Jones severed ties with coach

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Relieved Marion Jones is leaving the coach who gave Ben Johnson steroids, track and field's ruling body now wants her boyfriend and sprint champion Tim Montgomery to do the same.

Jones, her golden image at risk, said she is regretfully ending her relationship with Charlie Francis.

''It would have been better if it came earlier,'' IAAF general secretary Istvan Gyulai said by telephone from Monte Carlo on Thursday. ''It's good. I'm very glad that she pointed out that she feels some obligation to the sport itself.''

Jones, winner of three golds and two bronzes at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, and Montgomery, the 100-meter world-record holder, have been training in Raleigh with Francis. So far, Montgomery has not commented on whether he would continue to work with the coach.
