Krokhin has worked earlier as assistant coach with Evgeny Trefilov at national team, in the period when Russia has won twice WCh gold and an olympic silver. He had  worked at  Kuban Krasnodar and Lada Togliatti as well.

With Krokhin on the bench,  Russia ended on the second place of the Golden League tournament in Aarhus.
