Carroll, a Massachusetts native, coached several great Olympians, including Michelle Kwan, Evan Lysacek, Timothy Goebel and Gracie Gold. He died in Palm Springs, California, on Sunday after a battle with cancer, USA Today reported. 

"For over 10 years Frank was by my side – coaching and mentoring me to be the best skater and person that I can be," Kwan said of Carroll in a text to USA Today’s Christine Brennan. 

"He bestowed upon me a wealth of knowledge and history of the sport he loved so much," she continued. "Off the ice and over the years, he became much more than just a coach. I know he's changed the lives of thousands of skaters for the better, and I'm grateful that I'm one of them and I wouldn't be here without his guidance. I love and miss Frank very much."
