Meet Hockey's All Time Winningest Coach, Jerry York--A CLJournal Subscriber
Jerry York has been in the driver's seat for a number of great college hockey teams. Even after making history after winning his 1000th match, his focus was on keeping the vehicle moving forward.
The 70-year-old York, in his 44th season on the bench and 22nd at Boston College, is the first coach in NCAA Division I men's hockey to win 1,000 games.
"I've always been a front windshield type guy and I've always looked at what's next," York said. "I don't reflect back a lot ... otherwise I'd crash the car pretty quick."
York is no stranger to milestones. He has a 1,000-595-108 record since his career began in 1972 and has led his teams to five national championships -- one at Bowling Green and four at Boston College.
York is one of only three NCAA coaches to win a title at multiple schools and is the career leader in NCAA Tournament wins with 39.
In 2012, York secured his 925th career victory to pass Rob Mason and become the winningest coach in college hockey.
After the latest win, there doesn't seem to be much left to accomplish. "I got a text from a friend of mine (after the game)," York said. "He says, `Go get 2,000."
