Dave Tippett is enjoying life in the front office and isn't interested in making a return to being behind the bench.
"I didn't come here to coach," Tippett told theScore's Puck Pursuit Podcast. "If I wanted to coach, I could probably be back coaching. I came here with the mindset of helping build an organization and working with great people."
In June, Tippett was named senior advisor to the potential ownership group that hopes to bring an expansion franchise to Seattle.
"It's been a really interesting and fun process for me. Different from coaching," Tippett said. "I look back, I was a player for a long time, I was a coach for a long time, and having the ability to be involved in the startup of an organization that could end up being a legacy organization in the league, that's a pretty neat project."
Tippett last coached the Arizona Coyotes in 2017, but also doubled as the executive vice-president of hockey operations in his final season.
