BU’s Parker Retires

Legendary Boston University coach Jack Parker will step down at the end of the season, his 40th on the job.

Parker, who announced the decision Monday afternoon, has led the Terriers to three national championships in his time. He has 894 career wins — third-most all-time.

Parker brought his BU team to Ralph Engelstad Arena earlier this year and spoke to UND fans at a fan luncheon. UND is going on a return trip to Boston next year the week before Thanksgiving.

    The tentative schedule had UND at BU on Nov 22 and 23, which is the weekend before Thanksgiving. Has that changed to the 29th and 30th?

        Do you have any idea how tentative that schedule is or is that series definitely set for that weekend? I want to make sure I ask off from work far in advance so I’m certain I can be there.

      Great program, great Coach, and a tough Coach to follow for whomever is hired for this position. Best health and wishes to Coach Parker in his retirement.

    I cant wait for the national tournament and hear barry melrose talk about jerry york retiring and all his accomplishments, pretty sure melrose thinks parker and york are the same guy

  3. the BU alum are really sad to be saying goodbye to this classy coach. He’s got a great program over there. I wish JackPa the best of luck.

    Rumors are the Colorado Avalanche coach Joe Sacco is looking at position. He’s an Alum of BU. Would have better job security there. As an Avalanche Fan, you can have Sacco. Only made playoffs once since he took over.
