AMHERST, Mass. (AP) -- Jerry York has been in the driver's seat for a number of great college hockey teams. Even after making history Friday night, his focus was on keeping the vehicle moving forward.
The 70-year-old York, in his 44th season on the bench and 22nd at Boston College, became the first coach in NCAA Division I men's hockey to win 1,000 games with his team's 8-0 victory over Hockey East-rival UMass.
"I've always been a front windshield type guy and I've always looked at what's next," York said. "I don't reflect back a lot ... otherwise I'd crash the car pretty quick."
