Coaching career

York's coaching career began at Clarkson as an assistant coach. In the 1972 York became the head coach when he took over the job from Len Ceglarski who had accepted the head coaching job at BC.[2] York coached at Clarkson for 7 years, winning the ECAC regular season title in 1977.

In 1979 York moved from Clarkson to Bowling Green, taking over from Ron Mason.[2] In 15 seasons at the school, he compiled nine 20-win seasons, 4 CCHA regular season titles, 1 CCHA tournament title, 6 NCAA tournament appearances, and a national title in 1984.

York returned to his alma mater, Boston College, in 1994, and began rebuilding the program.[3] In the 1997-98, BC surprised the college hockey world by reaching the NCAA title game. In 17 years, York has led the Eagles to five Hockey East regular season titles in 2001, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2011, eight Hockey East tournament titles in 1998, 1999, 2001, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, five Beanpot titles in 2001, 2004, 2008, 2010, 2011, eleven NCAA tournament appearances, and three national titles[1] in 2001 by beating North Dakota, 2008 by beating Notre Dame and in 2010 by beating Wisconsin. York's BC teams have nine Frozen Four appearances in thirteen years from 1998 to 2010. During that span, BC has played in the National Championship Game six times. BC lost four national title games to Michigan in 1998, to North Dakota in 2000, to Wisconsin in 2006, and to Michigan State in 2007. Since 1998 York's BC teams rank 1st in the NCAA with a post-season winning percentage of 79% (61-16).
