Dater reports the 46-year-old has left the organization in order to spend more time with his family.
Foote’s son, Callan, was a first-round draft pick by the Tampa Bay Lightning in June’s entry draft. His other son, Nolan, currently plays for the WHL’s Kelowna Rockets.
Foote spent 17 years with Nordiques/Avalanche as a player, logging 967 games as one of the league’s best stay-at-home defensemen. He was an integral part of both of the franchise’s Stanley Cup victories.
