College Hockey:
Brown promoted to associate head coach at Boston College

Greg Brown has been promoted to associate head coach at Boston College.

“I am happy to elevate Greg to this new title,” Boston College head coach Jerry York said in a statement. “It is well deserved. He has played a key role in our success over the past eight seasons. I look forward to his continued contributions as our program moves forward.”

Brown, who is entering his ninth season with the Eagles, began his coaching career in August 2004 after a 12-year professional playing career.

A 1990 Boston College graduate, Brown was a two-time All-America first-team selection (1989, 1990), a two-time Hobey Baker Award finalist and is one of only two players in Hockey East history to twice capture the league’s player of the year honor.

Brown played three seasons for the Eagles (1986-87, 1988-89 and 1989-90), serving as team captain in 1989-90. He missed the 1987-88 season while playing with the U.S. National Team.

    Yorks successor most likely. Think he’ll be retiring soon? He’s pretty old and you can only have a geriatric running a major program like this for so long before they start to lose it (Jackie Parker anyone?)

      York seems to be like a fine wine and gets better with age, unlike Jack Parker and/or Joe Paterno. I’ll bet you York coaches for another few years as long as his health is good.

        Yeah thats true. He definitely seems to have a much better handle (that we know of) on his program, and he’s still churning out championships. Of course he lucked out with getting Johnny Gaudreau last year. Kid was set to play at Northeastern, then Crooked Cronin bolts letting the kid play wherever he wants. Actually was lined up to go to UNH but admissions wouldn’t let him in because it was too late, and BC jumped all over it.

    If, as most people believe, Greg Brown is York’s likely successor, what will happen to Mike Cavanaugh? Next Bowdoin (his Alma Mater) coach, perhaps, when Terry Meagher decides to step down? Cavanaugh is very knowledgeable and a good person. He was a respected Bowdoin captain as a senior.

    He is signed through 2014-15
