Reports: College hockey legend Parker retiring

. Fast facts

NCAA legend done

Legendary Boston University hockey coach Jack Parker will announce his retirement today, his 68th birthday, reports Sunday said.

Parker has coached the Terriers for 40 seasons, won three national championships and led BU to 24 NCAA Tournaments, the most by any coach.

Parker's 894 career victories are the most by a coach with one school and third all time. BU finished this regular season 18-15-2 and faces Merrimack in the quarterfinals of the Hockey East tournament next weekend.

The legacy of his program took a hit last year when a school-commissioned report concluded hockey players were given star treatment and lived in a "culture of sexual entitlement." The report was commissioned after two players were charged with sexual assault in cases less than three months apart.

The report did not conclude Parker knew of the inappropriate behavior, but he was stripped of his title as executive athletic director.
