(TSX / STATS) -- Arizona Coyotes owner Andrew Barroway announced late Thursday that long-time coach Dave Tippett had been let go in a mutual agreement.
"On behalf of the entire Coyotes organization, I would like to sincerely thank Tip for all of his hard work and the many contributions he made to our organization," Barroway said. "Tip is a man of high character and we are very grateful for his leadership during his tenure as our head coach.
"Ultimately, we have some philosophical differences on how to build our team. Therefore, we mutually agreed that it is in everyone's best interest to have a coaching change in order to move our franchise forward."
