The management of Salavat Yulaev has implemented a number of significant changes in top ranking personnel at the club, including the appointment of former Avtomobilist boss Anatoly Yemelin (pictured) as the new head coach. 

Four more specialists from the Yekaterinburg club have joined Yemelin at Ufa: Leonid Weisfeld has been named as general manager; Roman Belyaev becomes the new sports director, while Arkady Andreyev and Dmitry Kuroshin join the staff as senior coach and goalkeeping coach, respectively. 

Other new names on the payroll include defensive coach Andrei Zyuzin, a graduate of the Ufa hockey academy, and fitness coach Vasily Konovalov, who has a Doctorate in Pedagogical Sciences but spent last season on the Avangard Omsk coaching staff.
