York signs on for five more seasons at Boston College

Jerry York has signed a new five-year contract with Boston College that will see him stay behind the Eagles’ bench through the 2014-2015 season.

“I am very happy to continue my career here at Boston College,” York said in a statement. “Since returning to my alma mater 16 years ago, I have been blessed to be surrounded by outstanding assistant coaches and staff members, and countless players with great talent and character. In addition, the support from our administration has been fantastic. I look forward to the years ahead as we strive to keep Boston College among the nation’s premier hockey programs.”

York, a 1967 Boston College graduate, assumed the head coaching duties on June 15, 1994. The 2010-11 campaign is his 39th season as a head coach as he spent seven years (1972-1979) at Clarkson and 15 years (1979-1994) at Bowling Green, where he led the Falcons to a national title in 1984.

York is also college hockey’s second all-time winningest coach (first among active Division I coaches) with 858 victories.

  1. Breaking News!!! Jack Parker has signed a six year extension to stay at BU. In a prepared statement Coach Parker states, “no way I can retire with less wins than Jerry York.” In other Hockey East news other conference coaches admit that they admire both coaches, but are really envious of their payrolls.

  2. Congratulations to Coach York on his new 5 year contract at BC.He is one of the all-time greats in college hockey coaching,and BC is very fortunate to have him for another 5 seasons.Mike Olson Michigan State 1967-1970.

  3. Congrats to Coach York. As a BU fan, I look forward to 5 more years of watching my team battling them tooth and nail. Plus, this way, when Jack passes him, he can’t say he coached less years ;-)
