Coyote was one of the founders of the Diggers, an anarchist improv group active in Haight-Ashbury during the mid-1960s. Coyote was also an actor, writer and director with the San Francisco Mime Troupe; his prominence in the San Francisco counterculture scene led to his being interviewed for the book Voices from the Love Generation. He acted in and directed the first cross-country tour of The Minstrel Show, and his play Olive Pits, co-authored with Mime Troupe member Peter Berg, won the troupe an Obie Award from the Village Voice. Coyote became a member, and later chairman, of the California Arts Council from 1975 to 1983. In the late 1970s, he shifted from acting on stage to acting in films. In the 1990s and 2000s (decade), he acted in several television shows. He speaks fluent Spanish and French.
Dans les années 1960 il intègre la San Francisco Mime Troupe, une troupe de théâtre de rue californienne, avant de participer à la fondation des Diggers, un groupe contre-culturel anarchiste mêlant vie en squat autogéré, théâtre subversif et freeganisme.
Il débute au cinéma dans Die laughing en 1980 et apparaît dans E.T. l'extraterrestre en 1982. Il joue dans de nombreux téléfilms et séries et collabore souvent avec des cinéastes étrangers (Diane Kurys pour Un homme amoureux en 1987, Walter Salles pour A grande arte en 1991, Roman Polanski pour Lunes de fiel en 1992, Pedro Almodovar pour Kika en 1993). On le voit notamment en 2003 dans Bon Voyage et en 2010 dans Flashforward...

Parlant couramment le français, mais avec un certain accent, il a joué des personnages d'origine anglo-saxonne dans plusieurs films français.
