PHOENIX (AP) - The Phoenix Coyotes have agreed to a long-term contract extension with coach Dave Tippett.

Tippett had reportedly wanted to wait to see what happens with the uncertain ownership situation before making a decision to stay with the Coyotes.

The Coyotes have gone 156-96-42 in Tippett's four seasons with the team, despite the fact that the franchise was owned by the NHL and had strict financial restrictions during that time.

In 2011-12, the Coyotes went 42-27-13, won the franchise's first division title and advanced to the Western Conference finals for the first time in team history.
