After three years there he moved to Krylia Sovetov, a club in the Soviet Top League. Four seasons and three years later, in 1979 he moved back to Belarusian SSR to play for their best team in the Soviet Top League, Dinamo Minsk. Another 3 years later, in 1982 he was on the move again, this time back to Ukraine to play in Odessa for Chernomorets Odessa. The following season he moved to Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk. His two seasons there were the most successful of his career. He became the USSR champion in 1983, and won the bronze medal the following year (1984).

While coach of Dnipro he was brought on to be the caretaker head-coach of the Ukraine national football team. In the 1995–96 season Pavlov was coach of Dynamo Kyiv, leading them to a Ukrainian League title. Following Dynamo he has coached other Ukrainian clubs, including a return to Tavriya Simferopol, then at FC Illychivets Mariupol (7 years there), and FC Stal Alchevsk.
