Albie O’Connell is out as head coach at Boston University, sources have confirmed. The Hockey News first reported the news on Wednesday.
BU finished the season 19-13-3. The Terriers went 58-49-16 in four seasons as head coach and made one NCAA Tournament.
"This was obviously a difficult decision as Albie worked hard towards putting our team in a position to contend for championships," said Marrochello. "We recognize that he was part of several successful teams during his time as a student-athlete and coach here, and I wish him and his family nothing but the best.
"We have very high expectations for our men's ice hockey program and we are determined to have our team compete at the highest level of college hockey. After the conclusion of our regular year-end assessment, we believe that a new direction is needed for our program to achieve our goals."
