Boston University coach Parker issues statement apologizing for berating referee

Boston University head coach Jack Parker released a statement Wednesday night surrounding his behavior at the end of last Saturday night’s game against Maine, a game BU lost 3-1.

“I’d like to apologize to the fans at the rink and the CBS Sports Network audience for my verbal abuse of the referee at the end of Saturday’s game against the University of Maine,” Parker said. “It doesn’t matter what the substance was, the form was incorrect.”

The Terriers’ bench was given a 10-minute game misconduct at the 19:55 mark of the third period in the game after Matt Mangene scored an empty-net goal for Maine.
