  1. Great article on a great guy. When I first met him at the pep rally in December, the first thing we talked about was family history, not hockey. He always says hi whenever he sees me on campus, and I’m not afraid to say hi back. He runs a great team filled with great people (both on and off the ice) and it’s about time they got some recognition.

  2. Thanks for the well-deserved profile of Coach Durocher, which speaks to the kind of character and life lessons that our students can learn from the right coach. He’s a genuine and thoughtful guy who represents our University as well as anyone I can think of. Hoping this profile will get some more students, staff, and alumni out to Walter Brown Arena. Go Terriers!

  3. Fantastic man right here. The definition of first class to anyone he meets including fans, parents, students, and the media as well. He deserves everything he earns.

  4. Great story about one of the many heroes at BU – great coach, father, mentor and friend. If you’re looking for a role model, this is a good place to start. Terrier Nation is lucky to have him behind the bench. Keep up the great work Coach.
