Tippett, Dave
Phoenix Coyotes

Not much was expected from the 2009-10 Phoenix Coyotes. The franchise was facing bankruptcy, possible relocation and just days prior to the start of the regular season the club brought in Dave Tippett to replace the legendary Wayne Gretzky as the team's head coach.

Tippett's task was simple, keep his team focused on their on ice performance and in doing so he led the club to a league leading 28-point improvement over the previous season.

The Coyotes would finish the season with a franchise record 107 points, good for fourth place overall and head coach Dave Tippett would receive his first Jack Adams Award as coach of the year, receiving 57 of 59 first place votes.
