BU coach Parker retires; 40 years, 3 NCAA titles


“He’s been a mentor and coach to so many young men over his many years,” university president Robert Brown said. “That’s been an important part of his legacy.”

Heading into the Hockey East playoffs, Parker has a 894-471-115 record with 21 Beanpot titles and NCAA championships in 1978, 1995 and 2009. York, who played against Parker while growing up in the Boston area and has opposed him in the Hockey East, the Beanpot and the NCAA tournament, wished him well.

“We’ve competed against one another and we’ve coached against one another for a long, long time,” the BC coach said. “One of the greatest attributes about our relationship is that, although we’ve been in a competitive situation for such a long duration, we still maintain a unique personal relationship. From recruiting to coaching against one another in big games, we’ve maintained respect for one another. I’m grateful for that.”
