A few years after graduating college, Coyote was hired by Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida to perform as Indiana Jones in the live stunt show recreation of Raiders of the Lost Ark. He performed in more than 5,000 shows while using his skills of fighting, bull whip and high-falls.

To date Coyote has done over 11,000 stunts. In 1991, veteran stunt coordinator Glenn Wilder hired him to stunt double the bad guy in Passenger 57 (1992) starring Wesley Snipes. In 1994 veteran stunt coordinator Art Malesci hired him to stunt double for the Fox TV series Fortune Hunter, with Mark Frankel. Coyote's stunts included hanging from helicopters, wrestling alligators and giant pythons, near misses on cars, buses and trains, and numerous high falls. Coyote doubled for Frankel again on the Fox TV series Kindred: The Embraced (1996). Coyote has doubled for Antonio Banderas, Jeff Fahey and Rob Estes. He has stunt coordinated over a dozen B movie action films, including Deadly Ransom, The Silent Force, and Equal Justice.
