The New York Rangers have announced David Quinn as the team’s new head coach. Quinn has spent the past 5 seasons as the head coach of Boston University, where he took over for Jack Parker.

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.
