No, he hasn't had a lot of playoff success. He has two conference final appearances and the rest have been pretty much first round exits.
Btw, last years Yotes were riding a VERY hot Mike Smith in the playoffs...
Mind you, not saying Tippets a bad coach. But he still runs a defensive orientated system. He is basically a smarter version of Tom Renney.
Granted, Tippet wouldn't grind our players into a pulp like Torts does.
