Prior to that he was engaged in coaching activity, four times winning the country’s national championship (in 1995 - with the Spartak-Alania club, in 2003, 2005, 2006 - with CSKA Moscow) and the Russian Cup (in 2002, 2005, 2006, 2008 - with CSKA), twice - Russian Super Cup (in 2006, 2007 - with CSKA). In 2005, the CSKA Moscow club, coached by Gazzaev, won the UEFA Cup. Gazzaev was the head coach of the Russian national team from 2002 to 2003.
