Default front squat foot position

I always thought you were supposed to do front squats with your feet at a 45 degree angle, but this morning I did a session with this kickass Olylifting coach, and he told me to keep my feet straight. Then when I went to the gym this evening I was working up to my max front squat, I got 85 lbs...previous PR was 60. I know the mass gain program is getting all my PR's up (they're all up by about 10 pounds), but 25 lbs seems like a pretty huge jump considering I'd already worked out this morning. So I thought it might be the foot positioning might have something to do with it? What is the reasoning behind the 45 degree angle anyway?
