Tippett Becomes Yotes’ All-time Leader

Former UND forward Dave Tippett is now the all-time winningest coach in Phoenix Coyotes history.

Tippett passed Bob Francis over the weekend as Phoenix beat San Jose. That gave Tippett his 165th win as head coach of the Coyotes.

Tippett took over in 2009 and has posted a 165-96-42 record — a winning percentage of .602, which is by far the best in team history.

Tippett won the Jack Adams Award in 2010 as the NHL’s top coach.
