 GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Dave Tippett took a risk signing with the Phoenix Coyotes, a franchise with a murky future after being cast into bankruptcy protection.
Four years later, he has taken another leap into uncertainty, agreeing on a long-term contract to continue coaching the Coyotes despite an ownership situation that still hasn't been resolved.
Tippett likely would have been a hot commodity when his contract expires, both for teams that have coaching vacancies and even some that don't.
Instead, he decided to stick it out with the Coyotes, a team he's led to the playoffs three of his four years in the desert.
The Coyotes' ownership saga will likely end soon, with the team staying in the desert or heading someplace else.
Either way, the team will have its coach in place.
