Report: No deal between Coyotes and Stars’ Jackson
When the Arizona Coyotes fired Don Maloney earlier this month, Les Jackson’s name was immediately raised as a potential candidate to become the new general manager.
Jackson is the highly regarded assistant GM in Dallas. He’s been with the Stars dating back to their days in Minnesota.
And, according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie, Jackson will remain with the Stars.
ARI's window to talk to DAL AGM Les Jackson about management pos'n in ARI has closed without a deal being reached between ARI and Jackson.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) April 28, 2016
Which is to suggest, for now anyway, Jackson is staying in DAL (since ARI no longer has permission to talk to him).— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) April 28, 2016
Not locked in but possible/likely scenario: AGM John Chayka promoted to GM; HC Dave Tippett gets expanded role/title; experienced AGM hired.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) April 27, 2016
The Coyotes have promised that a new GM will be hired “well before” the draft in late June.
