Coyotes incumbent coach Wayne Gretzky is watching and waiting as the Yotes ownership is sorted out in bankruptcy court.
It's been rumored that the Reinsdorf-Kaites-(Tavares?) ownership group may sever ties with The Great One or offer him to a non-coaching role in the organization. Certainly can't be too comfortable watching as the action unfolds.
Even though Tom Renney has accepted a position as assistant coach in Edmonton, we believe that he would be the leading candidate to replace Gretzky if a coaching change is mandated by the new owners.
