Veteran specialist Nikolai Solovyov has been appointed head coach of Metallurg Novokuznetsk, filling the vacancy created yesterday by the resignation of German Titov. 

Solovyov led Severstal during the 2014-15 Championship (in September-October) and is returning to familiar territory in Novokuznetsk, where he was head coach from 2002 until 2005. His current deal is set to run to the end of the 2015-16 season. 

Sergei Kotov, who worked with Solovyov at Ugra Khanty-Mansiysk, has also joined the Metallurg coaching staff.
