The Phoenix Coyotes are an American professional ice hockey team based in Glendale, Arizona. They play in the Pacific Division of the Western Conference in the National Hockey League (NHL). The team started out as a charter member of the World Hockey Association (WHA), and were named the Winnipeg Jets. The WHA then merged with the NHL in 1979, the Jets relocated to Phoenix in 1996, and were renamed the Phoenix Coyotes. Having first played at the America West Arena, the Coyotes have played their home games at the Arena, formerly named the Glendale Arena, since 2003. The team has never been to the playoffs since the 2001–02 season. The Coyotes are owned by Jerry Moyes and Wayne Gretzky, Don Maloney is their general manager, and Shane Doan is the team captain.

There have been five head coaches for the Coyotes team. The team's first head coach was Don Hay, who has coached for one season. Bob Francis is the team's all-time leader for the most regular-season games coached (390), the most regular-season game wins (165), and the most regular-season points (411); Jim Schoenfeld is the team's all-time leader for the most playoff games coached (13), and the most playoff-game wins (5). Francis won the Jack Adams Award in the 2001–02 season. None of the Coyotes coaches have been elected into the Hockey Hall of Fame as a builder, though Wayne Gretzky has been elected into the Hockey Hall of Fame as a player in 1999. Francis and Gretzky have each spent their entire NHL head coaching careers with the Coyotes. Dave Tippett has been the head coach of the Coyotes since the 2009–10 season.

Famous quotes containing the words coaches, head, list, phoenix and/or coyotes:

    The real persuaders are our appetites, our fears and above all our vanity. The skillful propagandist stirs and coaches these internal persuaders.
    Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)

    In contrast to the flux and muddle of life, art is clarity and enduring presence. In the stream of life, few things are perceived clearly because few things stay put. Every mood or emotion is mixed or diluted by contrary and extraneous elements. The clarity of art—the precise evocation of mood in the novel, or of summer twilight in a painting—is like waking to a bright landscape after a long fitful slumber, or the fragrance of chicken soup after a week of head cold.
    Yi-Fu Tuan (b. 1930)

    Thirty—the promise of a decade of loneliness, a thinning list of single men to know, a thinning brief-case of enthusiasm, thinning hair.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    A phoenix it is
    This hearse that must bless
    With aromatic gums
    That cost great sums,
    The way of thurification
    To make a fumigation,
    Sweet of reflare,
    And redolent of air,
    John Skelton (1460?–1529)

    If the book is good, is about something that you know, and is truly written, and reading it over you see that this is so, you can let the boys yip and the noise will have that pleasant sound coyotes make on a very cold night when they are out in the snow and you are in your own cabin that you have built or paid for with your work.
    Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)
