Coyle departs Boston University for QMJHL USCHO Staff Report - December 16, 2011 Facebook Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp ReddIt Terrier Hockey Fan Blog. Coyle leaving is the second major departure this week for BU, as it already dismissed senior forward Corey Trivino on Monday. “Charlie has decided that he would like to focus on beginning his professional hockey career,” said BU coach Jack Parker in a statement. “We respect his decision and certainly wish him all the best in the future.” The U.S. Hockey Report states that Coyle was dismissed for ongoing academic issues. One of Coyle’s agents refuted the report about academics. “Contrary to speculation, he did not flunk out of BU,” Glen Giovanucci, who represents Coyle along with Bob Norton, said in an email. “He is leaving the world of being a student-athlete to play hockey on a full-time basis and pursue his goal of becoming an NHL player. Charlie loved his teammates [and] coaches and truly enjoyed playing hockey at BU.” Coyle, a first-round pick of the San Jose Sharks in 2010 who had his rights dealt to the Minnesota Wild this past summer, has three goals and 14 points in 16 games this season after a 26-point freshman campaign a year ago when he was the Hockey East rookie of the year.
