Bergeron coached the Quebec Nordiques from 1980 to 1987 before being traded to the New York Rangers for a first round draft pick and $75 000, a first in the NHL history that a coach was involved in a trade. With two games remaining in the 1988–89 NHL season he was relieved of his duties and replaced by Phil Esposito. Bergeron had a second stint as Nordiques coach during the 1989–90 NHL season.
Bergeron's nicknames included "Le Petit Tigre" ("The Little Tiger") and "Napoleon", in reference to his fiery temper, small stature, and French lineage.
