This reminds me of all those
"In Soviet Russia, they..."
Except that for Říha, it's no joke, but reality. Apparently, in post-Soviet Russia, they fire you on the very evening your club climbs to the top of the KHL standings. I can't imagine any coach in the NHL being treated this way. That's 2 seasons in a row now that a top Russian hockey club fired a Czech coach with a winning record. (It also happened to Čada last year at Avangard.)
I hope Košice will join the KHL next season and Říha will be their coach.
Both Čada and Říha have been highly successful coaches in Slovakia in the past, winning multiple Slovak Championships. (Except that it was in "reverse mode": Říha as Slovan coach, and Čada as Košice coach.)
