David G. Tippett (born August 25, 1961, in Moosomin, Saskatchewan, Canada) is the coach of the Phoenix Coyotes of the National Hockey League (NHL). He is the former head coach of the Dallas Stars. He was the fourth head coach of the Stars (19th in the history of the franchise), since accepting the job on May 21, 2002 and getting fired on June 10, 2009. He is also a former left winger who played in the NHL for the Hartford Whalers, Pittsburgh Penguins, Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals.

Prior to coaching in the NHL, Tippett was a head coach in the International Hockey League with the Houston Aeros where he coached them to the 1999 Turner Cup where they beat the Orlando Solar Bears, 4–3. That same year, Tippett was named the IHL Coach of the Year when the Aeros received the Fred A. Huber Jr. Memorial Trophy for the league's best regular season record (54–15–13).

Tippett came to Dallas after a stint as assistant coach with the Los Angeles Kings that lasted three full seasons, helping to lead the Kings to the playoffs all three seasons, after the team qualified for post-season play just one out of the previous six seasons.
