Dave Tippett’s father lives in St. Vital, and owns a farmhouse in southeastern Manitoba.

But that doesn’t make the head coach of the Coyotes any more eager to leave Phoenix.

“I don’t want to move,” Tippett said. “I came here to help build this organization here. And until somebody tells me I have to move, I’m not going to worry about it.”

Tippett is originally from Moosomin, Sask.

The closest he’s come to Winnipeg in years is his cottage, some 90 minutes south of Fargo, N.D.
