Boston College assistant coach Logue announces retirement

Boston College assistant coach Jim Logue is calling it a career after more than 50 years in the sport.

Logue, who was a goaltender for the Eagles from 1959-61, began his coaching tenure at Boston College in December 1993.

“Jim Logue has been an invaluable resource to the program and our coaching staff for quite some time,” BC head coach Jerry York said in a statement. “He’s a loyal servant of BC who has devoted a great deal of his life to his alma mater. We’ve also enjoyed a terrific run of success coaching together and I wish him the best in retirement.”

Logue, who was awarded the 2011 Parker-York Award honoring contributions to New England hockey, came Boston College from Salem State where he served as an assistant coach from 1991-93.

Prior to Salem State, Logue was head coach at North Andover High School from 1980-86 and also served two terms as assistant coach at Merrimack from 1983-88 and 1969-78. While at Merrimack, Logue also served as a coach with the U.S. Olympic program from 1972-76.

As a player, Logue led the Eagles to Beanpot championships in 1959 and 1961, capturing Most Valuable Player honors in the 1959 tournament. He was also a goaltender on the 1968 U.S. Olympic squad.

Logue was also one of the initial three former players whose BC jersey was retired back in 1999.
