Quinn has had a lot of success recruiting top players to Boston University. He has done fine with the teams he has had, but has not managed to coach them to the level of success that people expected. He has a 105–67–21 record at BU and has no NCAA championship titles despite having coached multiple teams with high preseason expectations.
Quinn does have professional hockey coaching experience. He coached the Lake Erie Monsters in the AHL and was an assistant coach with the Colorado Avalanche before taking the job at Boston University.
Quinn will take over a Rangers team that has struggled to meet expectations, similarly to BU. Barring any trades, he will now be coaching BC alumni Paul Carey, Kevin Hayes, and Chris Kreider.
BC Interruption will keep our readers updated as our rivals at BU search for a new head coach.
