No it didn't, it may have played a role but the fighter won the title, not the influence of a coach. On the flip side you could argue that his influence also lost 2 title fights if you want to get technical. When two of his fighters get brutally stopped standing in title fights one has to wonder whether or not his 'influence' is really as profound as it is made out to be.
Duane was a mediocre Thai fighter at best, you could find trainers with 10x more knowledge in Thailand.
