BU Hockey Coach Jack Parker to Retire

Jack Parker (BU.edu)

Legendary Boston University hockey coach Jack Parker will retire after this season, according to ESPN.com.

Parker will make the announcement on Monday, the day of his 68th birthday.

Parker has 894 regular-season victories, the most by any coach for one team, and third-most all time behind BC’s Jerry York and Michigan State’s Ron Mason.

Parker coached the Terriers for 40 consecutive seasons, making the NCAA tournament a record 24 times. His teams also captured 7 Hockey East crowns and 24 Beanpot titles.

After a tumultuous couple of years for the BU hockey program, with allegations of sexual assault and wild partying, Parker was stripped of his title as executive athletic director last year. An independent report, though, found Parker knew nothing about the extent pof his team’s behavior.

BU finished the regular season 18-15-2, and will take on Merrimack in the Hockey East quarterfinals next weekend.
