Gordon The Coach
After taking a year off as an amateur referee, Gordon was asked to step in and coach the Tulsa Oilers. Gordon agreed and was put into place towards the end of the Oilers' losing season. He was given full control for the 1937–38 season and coached the Oilers to a winning season with a record of 22–21–5. The following season saw the Oilers finishing with a 25–23–2 record and saw Gordon hit the ice to come out of retirement. Gordon skated in one game in which he scored an assist and four PIMs. The 1939–40 season would be Gordon's last as head coach when he led the Oilers to a 16–30–0 season, their worst season in years. Gordon decided to retire from coaching ice hockey in 1940.
