GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Phoenix Coyotes have promoted Sean Burke to director of player development.

In his new role, Burke will be responsible for all off-season amateur player development, including overseeing the Coyotes development camp and monitoring amateur player development during the season. The former NHL goaltender spent parts of five seasons with the Coyotes from 1999-2004 during his 18-year career.

Burke will continue in his role as goaltending coach. He is the Coyotes' career leader in goals-against average (2.39) and ranks second in save percentage (.919).

Coyotes general manager Don Maloney also announced Thursday that Dave King has stepped down from his position as assistant coach to become a development coach for the franchise. King will oversee all pro player development, including working with coaches and players with Portland of the AHL.
