Former Sharks CEO Jamison emerges as 1 of 2 bidders to purchase Phoenix Coyotes

GLENDALE, Ariz. - A group headed by former San Jose Sharks president and CEO Greg Jamison is one of two bidders for the Phoenix Coyotes.

Glendale spokeswoman Julie Frisoni confirmed Friday that Jamison was one of the bidders and that no bonds would be sold as part of any proposed deals. She would not elaborate on the negotiations or who the other bidder was.

The Coyotes have been owned by the NHL since the team filed for bankruptcy in the fall of 2009. The city of Glendale paid US$25 million for the second straight year so the team could continue playing at Jobing.com Arena for the 2011-12 season.

Chicago businessman Michael Hulsizer withdrew from talks to buy the team in June.
