Chestnut Hill, Mass. -- Boston College has announced that it has extended the contract of head hockey coach Jerry York through the 2019-2020 season. York, a 1967 alum of BC, is the winningest coach in NCAA history. He has amassed 472 of his 939 wins at his alma mater. He previously coached at Clarkson and Bowling Green. York led BGSU to the 1984 NCAA Championship. He left the Falcons program after the 1993-94 season, and has been leading Boston College to unprecedented success ever since.
York's resume at Boston College is second to nobody. The Eagles won the national championship in 2001, 2008, 2010 and 2012 and have made the Frozen Four six additional times. York has also coached BC to nine Hockey East Tournament titles.
Boston College, sitting at 4-2-1 overall and 2-0-0 in Hockey East, will travel a few miles down Commonwealth Ave. on Friday night to face archrival Boston University at 7:30 p.m. at Agganis Arena. The Eagles return home for a nonconference matchup with Army on Sunday at 3 p.m.
