Gretzky resigns as Coyotes’ head coach

"Both remaining bidders have made it clear that I don't fit into their future plans"

Wayne Gretzky is stepping down as the head coach and director of operations of the Phoenix Coyotes. He’s leaving amidst a dispute between the NHL and billionaire Jim Balsillie over the team’s ownership, a battle which has left Gretzky’s $9.1 million salary in question. The Great One said he made the decision because “both remaining bidders have made it clear that I don’t fit into their future plans.”
