Legendary Boston University hockey coach Jack Parker will announce his retirement Monday, ESPN reported Sunday.

Parker, who has coached the Terriers for 40 seasons, will turn 68 on Monday.

Parker has won three national championships and led BU to 24 NCAA hockey tournament berths, the most by any coach. His 894 career victories are the most by a coach with one school, and third most all-time, trailing current Boston College coach Jerry York and former Michigan State coach Ron Mason. Parker has also guided BU to seven Hockey East titles and 21 Beanpot championships.

The Terriers finished the 2012-13 regular seasons with a record of 18-15-2. They will host Merrimack in the quarterfinals of the Hockey East tournament next weekend.

Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
