Dave Tippett and, the team currently known as the Phoenix Coyotes have mutually agreed upon an extension with the organization, despite any possible relocation in the future. Tippett and the Coyotes have mutually agreed on what is believed to be a five year extension.
Tippett showed his concerns about staying with the team with the possible relocation from Glendale to Seattle, or wherever they may end up, but in the end came around to make a commitment for another five years to the Coyotes. Whether they stay put or move half way across the country is still uncertain, but the Coyotes have their coach.
Tippett has been coaching the Coyotes for four seasons now, amassing a total record of 156-96-42. Tippett also received the Jack Adams Award, for best coach in his first season in Phoenix after leading them to a 50 win season.
Although there is much uncertainty surrounding the Coyotes future in Glendale, they now have one less thing to worry about. The man behind the bench is locked in and is staying put for an extra five seasons, regardless of any relocation the team might face.
