Boston College associate coach Greg Brown has been hired as an assistant coach with the New York Rangers.
Earlier this offseason, the Rangers named former Boston University coach David Quinn their head coach.
Brown joins the Rangers organization after spending the past 14 seasons at Boston College (2004-18), including the last six seasons as the team’s associate coach.
In his role at Boston College, Brown was responsible for overseeing the team’s defensemen, and he also worked with the team’s special teams units. Brown coached several current and former Rangers during his tenure at Boston College, including Chris Kreider and Kevin Hayes.
In addition to his coaching experience with Boston College, Brown has served as an assistant coach with USA Hockey in several international tournaments. He served as an assistant coach with the United States at the IIHF World Junior Championship three times (2014, 2017, 2018), helping Team USA earn a gold medal in 2017 and a bronze medal in 2018.
Brown coached current Rangers defenseman Brady Skjei during the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship, and he also coached defenseman Ryan Lindgren, a Rangers prospect, at the IIHF World Junior Championship in both 2017 and 2018.
