“It’s a great selection by UConn,” Northeastern coach Jim Madigan said. “It rewards a guy who’s well respected and who has paid his dues and who has been a big part of the BC success along with coach York, (and fellow assistants Greg) Brown and (Jim) Logue. He’s a quality guy and a gifted coach.”

"If it's definitely true, I'm obviously happy for Coach Cavanaugh," Mullane said. "He has four national championships, a ton of Hockey East championships under his belt. He has been as huge a part of the success as anyone else around this place. He has been a great influence on my career at BC."

14. Boston College: Nobody in the ACC has more work to do that first-year BC coach Steve Addazio, but he came out of the spring as enthusiastic as ever. Depth at all positions remains a concern, but particularly at running back. The good news is that veteran quarterback Chase Rettig returns, and he has a familiar face in former BC wide receivers coach Ryan Day, who is now the offensive coordinator.

Daily 5: Make or break recruiting classes in 2014 (
5. Boston College. Following a few forgettable seasons, the BC program has become a throw-in school on offer lists that fails to differentiate itself from some of the national powers with whom it used to compete. Never was that more evident than in the 2013 recruiting class which finished 14th in the ACC and 87th nationally. While it was a small class in size, a 247Composite average of 80.87 reveals that the talent wasn’t where it needs to be. Fast forward to 2014 and BC is off and running under new head coach Steve Addazio. Led by four-star Thaddius Smith and cornerback Isaac Yiadom (pictured), BC needs to continue to turn the tide.

“I think there can always be tweaks,” Swofford said, “if and when our member schools want to do that. We’ve had a lot of discussion about that topic over the last couple of years, as you would expect with the new schools coming, and at each point ultimately the schools end up at that same place, and that is maintaining the divisions as they currently exist with Louisville filling the (Atlantic Division) slot that Maryland had.”
