Bob McKenzie tweeted out just moments ago that The Coyotes are were parting ways with long serving Coach Dave Tippett.

Friedman also had the report as well.

Craig Morgan confirmed that they had mutually parted ways.

I can confirm with my own contact that this is the case as well.

Dave Tippett is no longer involved with the Arizona Coyotes franchise.

Tippett came to the Coyotes when they had no coach and very little prospect of going anywhere. He took the team to the playoffs the first three years as coach and to the Western Conference finals in 2012.

With this firing, so close to the draft, it makes you wonder if something bigger is on it’s way.

Here is the link to the official statement from the team.

We will continue to follow this as the situation unfolds.
