Slovan head coach Rostislav Cada has asked the club to terminate his contract, and the board has accepted his resignation.
Cada has been in charge at Bratislava since the start of the 2012-13 season, when he guided the team to the play-offs in its very first year in the KHL Championship. The following year, Slovan finished the regular season in 11th place in the Western Conference and was eliminated from the Nadezhda Cup at the qualifying stage. In all, Cada’s record as Bratislava boss is 55 wins and 63 losses out of 118 games in the KHL Championship.
He also had a spell in charge of Avangard in the 2011-12 season but was removed from his post midway through the campaign, despite the Omsk men recording 19 victories against 14 defeats and occupying third place in the Eastern Conference.
The identity of Cada’s replacement is expected to be announced in the coming days. Vladimir Országh formerly of the NY Islanders, Nashville Predators and St. Louis Blues, and Jan Lipiansky, a former Slovan favorite, have been put in charge of team affairs until a new head coach is confirmed.
