Jack Parker, whose career with Boston University spans nearly four decades, was named the University's first executive director of athletics in April 2002. Recognized primarily for his accomplishments as the Terriers' hockey coach since 1973, Parker continues to guide the BU hockey program.

Parker, who serves as the chief strategist, advocate, and spokesman for varsity athletics at Boston University, also works closely with Assistant Vice President and Director of Athletics Mike Lynch in the strategic issues involving the athletic department. Parker also focused his attention on the fundraising efforts for the University's ambitious plans centering on the John Hancock Student Village complex, in particular the Harry Agganis Arena. The Arena, which opened on Jan. 3, 2005, serves as the home of the Terrier men's ice hockey team, and seats 6,300 fans for hockey.

A native of Somerville, Parker will be entering his 38th year as the Terriers' varsity hockey coach. During his illustrious career, he has amassed a record of 834-429-104 (.648). His win total and winning percentage rank in the top three among all active Division 1 coaches, while no coach, either active or retired, has won more games at the same institution than Parker. In 24 of his previous 37 seasons, his teams have won at least 20 games, while 23 of his teams have advanced to the NCAA tournament. In the NCAAs, Parker has posted 30 wins, the second most of any Division 1 coach. His teams have won a combined total of 49 championships, including three NCAA Division 1 titles, a record 21 Beanpots, seven Hockey East titles and four ECAC titles.

Over the years, 23 of Parker's players have played in the Olympics, including four members of the 1980 U.S. Team that won the Gold Medal in Lake Placid. In addition, over 50 of his players have played in the National Hockey League. Of that group, nine were first-round draftees including Rick DiPietro, who was the number one pick overall in the 2000 draft.

Parker also enjoyed outstanding success as a player. He was the MVP of his Catholic Memorial High School team his senior year and went on to star for the 1966-68 Terrier teams. They had a combined record of 72-22-4, won three Beanpots, and advanced to the NCAA twice. He was captain of the team his senior year and received the Bennett McInnis Award for team spirit.

Twice named the NCAA Coach of the Year, Parker was inducted into the Boston University and Beanpot Halls of Fame, and was presented an honorary Doctorate of Letters degree from Boston University in 1997 for all he has accomplished at his alma mater.

Married to the former Jacqueline Gibson of Wellesley, Parker has two daughters--Allison and Jacqueline and three grandsons, Jake, Shane and Ryan.
