According to multiple sources, it has been reported that Boston University’s Mens Hockey Coach Jack Parker is to announce his retirement monday morning. Parker graduated from Catholic Memorial in 1964 and then went on to play four years with the Terriers (1965-1968) where the team went 77-22-4, won 3 Beanpot’s and reached the NCAA tourney twice (4th place in 1966, 2nd in 1967). He then coached at Medford High School (1968-1969) for a season before being named as an assistant coach at BU from 1969-1973 until he took the reins from predecessor Leon Abbott in 1973. Parker who is a staple in Boston hockey at all levels had been behind the Terrier’s bench for the past 40 years.  In those 40 years he has led the Terriers to the NCAA D1 hockey tournament a record 24 times. He has won 894 games with the team placing him third all time behind Boston College’s Jerry York (940) and Michigan Stat’s Ron Mason (924) and giving him the most all time wins with one team.  Some other stats of Jack Parker’s amazing tenure with BU are: -3-time NCAA men’s champions (1978, 1995, 2009) -4-time ECAC men’s champions (1974, 1975, 1976, 1977) -3-time ECAC men’s regular season champions (1976, 1978, 1979) -7-time Hockey East men’s champions (1986, 1991, 1994, 1995, 1997, 2006, 2009) -8-time Hockey East men’s regular season champions (1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2006, 2009) -21-time Beanpot winners (1975, 1978, 1979, 1982, 1986, 1987, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009) - 3-time Spencer Penrose D1 coach of the year (1975, 1978, 2009) Parker’s final years as the BU coach have been somewhat astonishing for such a well respected coach.  As the Boston Globe obtained documents in September from a university study which found a culture of “sexual entitlement” surrounding the team. ”The report was commissioned after two BU players were charged with sexual assault in separate incidents three months apart. Parker was stripped of his title of athletic director after the details came to light.” (Globe) The announcement comes one day after BU clinched home ice in the first round of the Hockey East playoffs against Merrimack finishing the regular season with a record of 18-15-2.
