Jeff Cox of the NE Hockey Journal is reporting that Boston College associate head coach Greg Brown is leaving BC to join David Quinn's staff with the Rangers.
He was a teammate of David Quinn's on the 1985-86 USA World Junior team.
Brown played at BC for three seasons in the late 80s and played 94 games in the NHL with the Sabres, Penguins and Jets.
He has been with BC since 2004-05 and was promoted to associate head coach under Jerry York in 2012-13.
Brown was at BC for all of Chris Kreider and Kevin Hayes' time there.
His bio on the BC website indicates that he worked "closely with the team's defensemen and has worked extensively with special teams."
In his playing career at BC he was a two-time Hobey Baker finalist and he was a teammate of Brian Leetch at BC and both Leetch and Richter on various USA teams.
Brown was an assistant for the 2013-14 Team USA World Junior team that featured Brady Skjei, the 2016-17 and 2017-18 USA World Junior teams that featured Ryan Lindgren.
Adam Rotter: Seems odd that the former coach of BU would hire one of the top coaches from BC, but this looks like a situation where Quinn and Brown are likely long-time friends and competitors dating back to their time in college and playing together for Team USA. Brown has a history with some of the players and I'm sure he has similar relationships with all the Boston players in the same way that Quinn does. He worked with the defense at BC and it's probably likely that he will do the same with the Rangers. Lindy Ruff worked with the defense last year and with Ruff returning, it's possible he will take on a different role under David Quinn.
