Gretzky reported considering coaching

MESA, Ariz., Oct. 14 (UPI) -- Former NHL great Wayne Gretzky reportedly is considering a move into coaching.

The East Valley Tribune reports Gretzky, managing partner of the Phoenix Coyotes, may replace Rick Bowness once the lockout is over.

Gretzky said he hadn't thought much about a move to coaching since general manager Mike Barnett first broached the subject before the June draft.

"I have so much on my plate with my personal and business commitments that I haven't really sat down to seriously discuss the idea," Gretzky told the Tribune. "It's the closest thing to playing, and I do miss being around the team atmosphere. But I certainly have a lot of other things to occupy my time that are also exciting.

"Coaching is something you have to throw yourself into. The daily preparation is a tough job."
