Boston University Names Quinn Head Men's Ice Hockey Coach - Former BU captain and associate head coach returns to take over helm of Terrier program - Boston University Athletics - - Tuesday, March 26.

BOSTON - Former Boston University associate head coach and current Colorado Avalanche assistant David Quinn has been named the 11th head coach in the storied history of the Boston University men's ice hockey program, as announced on Tuesday by Assistant Vice President and Director of Athletics Mike Lynch and President Dr. Robert A. Brown.

Quinn, who played at BU from 1984-1988, replaces his former head coach and mentor, Jack Parker, who announced his retirement earlier this month after 40 seasons at the helm of the Terrier program. At the conclusion of Colorado's season, Quinn will officially take over the BU post.

An All-Hockey East and All-New England defenseman at BU and a co-captain during his senior year of 1987-88, Quinn came back to campus in 2004 to become the team's associate head coach, a role he served in for five seasons. Quinn's recruiting efforts were instrumental in helping build BU's 2009 national championship team. During his time as associate head coach, he worked primarily with the team's defensemen, turning the unit into arguably the best in the nation. All six of the defensemen from the 2009 title squad have reached the National Hockey League.

After helping the Terriers reach the pinnacle of college hockey, Quinn left to join the Avalanche organization as the head coach of its American Hockey League affiliate in Cleveland, the Lake Erie Monsters. He compiled a 115-94-7-20 record in three seasons with Lake Erie and guided the Monsters to their first-ever playoff berth in 2010-11. He was named an assistant coach on former BU teammate Joe Sacco's staff at Colorado prior to this season.
