Former player Greeley back at Boston University as associate head coach

Former Boston University player Steve Greeley has returned to the Terriers to serve as the associate head coach on first-year head coach David Quinn’s staff.

Greeley, who spent the last seven years as a scout for the Los Angeles Kings’ organization, replaces Mike Bavis, who resigned after serving on the BU hockey staff for 15 years, including the past four as associate head coach.

“Steve is a bright and well-respected scout in the hockey world and he’ll be a fantastic college hockey coach,” said Quinn in a statement. “He’ll help us out in a lot of ways, as he is a fantastic evaluator of talent and a hard-working, enthusiastic person who will be able to connect with our players on many levels. I couldn’t be more pleased to have him back here at BU.”

“I am honored to be coming back to Boston University and very excited to get to work,” added Greeley. “I loved this university as a student-athlete and look forward to working for this program under David Quinn.”

As a player at BU for Jack Parker from 2000-04, Greeley played in 77 games and as a senior in 2004, he was the recipient of the team’s Bennett McInnis Award for Spirit.
