Former Boston College forward and NHL veteran Marty McInnis has been added to the BC coaching staff as the program's volunteer assistant. Head coach Jerry York had to replace two assistant coaches this offseason after Mike Cavanaugh moved on to take the top job at Connecticut and Jim Logue retired.

York hired former UNH goaltender Michael Ayers to become the program's second assistant. Ayers was brought in as a full-time assistant, but also brought in because Logue's departure meant the loss of the team's goaltending coach. Ayers had previously been with the US National Team Development Program in Ann Arbor, Mich.

McInnis, a member of the Boston College Athletics Hall of Fame, played in the NHL for 12 seasons with the New York Islanders, Calgary Flames, Anaheim Ducks and Boston Bruins. The Hingham, Mass. native starred at BC from 1988-1991 before turning pro following his junior season.
