Russia’s hockey coach out after Olympic disappointment

MOSCOW ó Russian hockey coach Zinetula Bilyaletdinov is leaving his job after the home teamís disappointing exit in the quarterfinals of the Sochi Olympics.
The International Ice Hockey Federation said Russia is looking for a new coach before the world championship in May in Belarus.
The IIHF said Russian hockey federation officials agreed to Bilyaletdinovís departure after meeting with him on Wednesday.
Russia lost 3-1 to Finland to miss out on an Olympic medal, which was among the nationís top priorities at the Sochi Games.
Bilyaletdinov was appointed in June 2011 and led the team to a world championship the following year.
As a player for the Soviet Union, he won gold at the 1984 Sarajevo Olympics and silver in 1980 at Lake Placid.
