After his playing career Yurzinov started coaching. He was the coach of HC TPS from 1992 to 1998 and despite Hannu Jortikka having more championships, Yurzinov is widely considered the most legendary and successful coach of TPS by the team's supporters. In 1976, he was again inducted into the Russian and Soviet Hockey Hall of Fame but this time as a builder.[1] He received the same honor in 2002 from the IIHF Hall of Fame.[2]
