CHESNUT HILL, Mass. - Greg Brown, who is entering his ninth season on the Boston College hockey staff, has been promoted to Associate Head Coach, according to an announcement made by head coach Jerry York.
"I am happy to elevate Greg to this new title. It is well deserved," York said. "He has played a key role in our success over the past eight seasons. I look forward to his continued contributions as our program moves forward."
Brown began his coaching career in August 2004 after a 12-year professional playing career. In his eight-year tenure at the Heights, the team has captured six Hockey East Tournament titles and three national titles (2008, 2010 and 2012) in five Frozen Four appearances. The team has advanced to the national championship game five times in the last eight seasons.
A 1990 Boston College graduate, Brown, a defenseman, was a two-time All-America first-team selection (1989 and 1990), a two-time Hobey Baker Award finalist and is one of only two players in Hockey East Association history to twice capture the league's Player of the Year honor.
Brown played three seasons for the Eagles (1986-87, 1988-89 and 1989-90), serving as team captain in 1989-90. He missed the 1987-88 season while playing 55 games with the U.S. National Team then representing his country at the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary. In addition to the 1988 Games, Brown played for Team USA in the 1992 Olympics in Albertville, France.
He was inducted into Boston College's Varsity Club Hall of Fame in November 2004.
Brown resides in Scituate with his wife Katherine and their children, Ashley and Peyton.
