Buddy Powers, a former Terrier who has 24 years of coaching experience at the collegiate level - including a combined 14 as a head coach at Bowling Green and Rensselaer - rejoined the Boston University men's ice hockey program in 2009 and enters his third season as an assistant coach on Parker's staff.

Powers played for the Terriers from 1972-75 and was a senior in Jack Parker's first full season at the helm during the 1974-75 campaign. Powers, a Hyde Park native, also joined the USA Hockey National Team Development Program as an assistant coach for the 2002-03 season.

Powers returned to Boston from Bowling Green, where he served as head coach from 1994-2002 before becoming the director of the BGSU Ice Arena in addition to being a color analyst for the team's local television broadcasts. He was named CCHA Coach of the Year in his first year at the helm, leading the Falcons to a 25-11-2 mark and a second-place league finish, and compiled 135 wins during his eight seasons while also representing the conference on the NCAA Division I Hockey Committee.

Powers was also an assistant coach at Bowling Green from 1982-88 and in those six successful seasons, he helped guide the Falcons to their lone NCAA championship in 1983 along with four CCHA regular-season titles, one CCHA tournament title and four NCAA appearances.

Before taking over the Falcons' program, Powers was the head coach at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for five seasons (1989-94), reaching two ECAC championship games (1990, 1994) and helping the program qualify for the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1985 with an at-large berth in 1994. During his five years at RPI, he led the Engineers to a record of 94-63-13, and his 14-year head-coaching career, which began with a one-year stint (1988-89) at Rochester Institute of Technology, includes an overall record of 255-220-41.

Powers played professionally in Europe for four years before beginning his coaching career in 1980 as an assistant coach at Colgate. He also was a head coach at the 1993 United States Olympic Festival games after coaching Team USA during the USA Cup Challenge in 1992.
