Jerry York (born July 25, 1945 in Watertown, Massachusetts) is the Men's Hockey Coach at Boston College. He graduated from Boston College High School in 1963 and BC in 1967.[1] York is the winningest active coach in NCAA hockey, and leads the all-time list with 957 wins, as of the end of the 2012-13 season.[1] He has won the NCAA Division I Men's Ice Hockey title five times as a coach, at Bowling Green State University in 1984 and BC in 2001, 2008, 2010 and 2012 tying him with Murray Armstrong for second-most all-time behind only Vic Heyliger (6). York received the Spencer Penrose Trophy for being named Division I Coach of the Year in 1977.[1]

Coaching career[edit]

York's coaching career began at Clarkson as an assistant coach. In the 1972 York became the head coach when he took over the job from Len Ceglarski who had accepted the head coaching job at BC.[2] York coached at Clarkson for 7 years, winning the ECAC regular season title in 1977.

In 1979 York moved from Clarkson to Bowling Green, taking over from Ron Mason.[2] In 15 seasons at the school, he compiled nine 20-win seasons, 4 CCHA regular season titles, 1 CCHA tournament title, 6 NCAA tournament appearances, and a national title in 1984.

York returned to his alma mater, Boston College, in 1994, and began rebuilding the program.[3] In the 1997-98, BC surprised the college hockey world by reaching the NCAA title game. In 18 years, York has led the Eagles to six Hockey East regular season titles in 2001, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2011, 2012, nine Hockey East tournament titles in 1998, 1999, 2001, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, six Beanpot titles in 2001, 2004, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, twelve NCAA tournament appearances, and four national titles[1] in 2001 by beating North Dakota, 2008 by beating Notre Dame, 2010 by beating Wisconsin and 2012 by beating Ferris State University. York's BC teams have eleven Frozen Four appearances in fifteen years from 1998 to 2014. During that span, BC has played in the National Championship Game eight times. BC lost four national title games to Michigan in 1998, to North Dakota in 2000, to Wisconsin in 2006, and to Michigan State in 2007. Since 1998 York's BC teams rank 1st in the NCAA with a post-season winning percentage of 80% (65-16).

On November 7, 2013, York signed a contract extension to stay as the head coach of Boston College through 2020, which would be his 46th season coaching and 26th at BC.[4]
