Jerry York, the winningest coach in college hockey history, has agreed to a contract extension through the 2019-20 season, Boston College athletics director Brad Bates announced Thursday night.

‘€œJerry York is the most successful coach in the history of college hockey,’€ Bates said. ‘€œWe are extraordinarily fortunate to have a leader and representative of his caliber continue to serve this great institution and his alma mater.’€

York, who graduated from BC in 1967, is in his 42nd season as a head coach, 20th at BC. He has led the Eagles to four national championships, 10 Frozen Fours and nine Hockey East tournament titles. He has won 939 games total, 472 of which have come at BC.

‘€œI am very excited and proud to extend my contract here at Boston College,’€ said York, who coached at Clarkson and Bowling Green before getting the BC job. ‘€œAs always, the focus of our program will be to graduate student-athletes and strive to add championships. The current state of Boston College hockey is strong and I envision it only getting stronger.’€

The Eagles are currently 4-2-1 on the season. They’ll take on archrival Boston University at Agganis Arena on Friday night.
