The Arizona Coyotes and assistant coach Phil Housley have mutually agreed to part ways, the team announced Sunday.
Housley, 58, joined the staff in June 2019 and just completed the final season of his three-year contract.
The Coyotes (25-50-7, 57 points) finished 2021-22 with the worst record in the Western Conference under first-year head coach Andre Tourigny.
“On behalf of the entire organization, I would like to thank Phil for everything he did for the Coyotes on and off the ice the past three seasons,” general manager Bill Armstrong said in a news release. “Phil is very well-respected, a true professional and a good coach. We wish him and his family all the best in the future.”
Housley coached the Buffalo Sabres for two seasons before he joined Arizona, compiling a 58-84-22 record from 2017-19.
