Krylov said that the head coach of Avangard Kravets is given full confidence.
MOSCOW, November 18 – RIA Novosti, Andrey Senchenko. Alexander Krylov, chairman of the board of the Omsk hockey club, said that the leadership of Avangard gives full confidence to the head coach of the team, Mikhail Kravets.
Kravets joined Avangard in September and joined the coaching staff of former Omsk head coach Dmitry Ryabykin. Following his resignation in October, Kravets was appointed acting head coach of the club, and on 18 November the Hawks Board approved him for the position.
“Unfortunately, the coaching team that worked at the beginning could not create the conditions that would allow the hockey players to fully present themselves. Probably Dmitry (Ryabykin) tried to replicate the Bob Hartley system but I told him that copying is always bad. You have to have it.” That didn’t help the team become one entity,” said Krylov.
According to Krylov, the reason for leaving Ryabykin was his inability to properly set up Avant-garde hockey players and his low level of rhetoric.
