Report: Bavis stepping down as Boston University associate coach

Mike Bavis, who publicly lobbied for the Boston University head coaching job before the school hired David Quinn to replace Jack Parker, has resigned as the Terriers’ associate head coach.

The school has not officially confirmed the report, first published by U.S. Hockey Report on Saturday.

Bavis was an assistant at BU for 15 seasons, the last four as associate head coach. He was considered a candidate to replace Parker when the 40-year coaching veteran announced his retirement in March, but the school instead chose Quinn, a former Terriers associate head coach.

Bavis played for BU from 1989-93 and also spent two seasons in the Buffalo Sabres’ organization and two as a player agent after graduation.
