Boston University head coach David Quinn, after leading the Terriers to the Frozen Four title game in April, has been rewarded with a five-year contract.
This past season in his second year at the helm of the program, Quinn guided the Terriers to the Hockey East regular-season and tournament titles, in addition to the program’s 30th Beanpot crown. BU reached the national championship game and finished the year with a record of 28-8-5.
The win total represented the best turnaround in program history and it was the fifth-best in the history of college hockey, as the Terriers rebounded from a 10-win campaign in Quinn’s first season as head coach.
“To be honest, David has done exactly what we thought he would with our men’s ice hockey team,” said BU director of athletics Drew Marrochello in a statement. “We had lofty expectations when we hired him and he has exceeded those with outstanding leadership both on and off the ice. There’s nobody else we’d rather have leading this program.”
“Coming back to BU to serve as head coach of one the premier college hockey programs has been everything I hoped it would be,” added Quinn. “I am looking forward to leading our student-athletes over the next five years and I would like to thank Drew, [senior vice president] Todd Klipp and President Brown for their confidence in our staff. We will continue to strive to be the best program in the country – athletically, academically and socially.”
