Jerry Moyes
Please vote to return to collections (Voting Results will appear on Right Sidebar).
Entrepreneur
    Born in Phoenix, Arizona
    Founder of Swift Transportation.
    Majority owner of the Phoenix Coyotes (2006-09 [pending])
    He has ten children.
    He claims to have lost in excess of $300 million on the Coyotes franchise.
    Most of his sporting ventures proved to be disastrous, as he lost excess amounts of money on both the Coyotes and Arizona Sting franchises.
    It is widely speculated he made a backroom deal with Jim Balsillie to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in exchange for Balsillie purchasing the team and relocating it to Hamilton, Ontario.
    When Gary Bettman got wind of the proposed sale, he promptly stripped Moyes of all ownership duties with the team.
    He, along with the NHL, became involved in a legal squabble over who actually has legal control of the Coyotes franchise.
    He went against former owner Jerry Colangelo's advice and built the team's new arena in Glendale rather then in the preferred Scottsdale area, where the majority of the team's fanbase resided.
    He was the founder of Swift Transportation.
    When the franchise was on the verge of relocating to Portland, Oregon, he was part of a local ownership group which kept the franchise in Phoenix.
    Many of the debts he took on as majority owner were a result of the failures made by the previous ownership group.
    He helped finance construction of the Jobing.com Arena in Glendale.
    When he realized he was losing money with the NLL's Arizona Sting franchise, he wisely decided to cease operations.
