    Wild dogs and Coyotes are not directly related.  Coyotes are said to have evolved alongside the Dire Wolf.  Wild Dogs are more Hyena-like in appearance.

    To an extent. Coyotes and Wild Dogs both belong to the Family Canidae, which also include wolves, jackals, foxes, dingoes, and domestic dogs. Coyotes are more closely related to jackals, wolves, and domestic dogs, as they share the same genus: Canis. Wild dogs belong to the genus Lycaon, which does not include any other species.
