Coyotes Hire Steve Patterson As President, CEO; Promote John Chayka 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Jul 12, 2017 10:51 pm

The Coyotes hired Steve Patterson as president and CEO on Wednesday, hoping the longtime sports executive can help solve their ongoing arena issue.

The Coyotes have sought a new arena since the city of Glendale renegotiated a 15-year lease in 2015 and lost a partner for a new arena when Arizona State pulled out of an agreement earlier this year.

Patterson has worked as an NFL, NBA and college executive, serving key roles in designing and renovating arenas at nearly every stop.

The Coyotes also promoted GM John Chayka to president of hockey operations, a day after hiring Rick Tocchet as head coach.

After the mess he made at Texas, I wouldn't put Patterson in charge of a lemonade stand.
