Jack Parker will retire as head coach of Boston University's men's hockey team Monday after 40 seasons. The announcement will come Monday, on Parker's 68th birthday.

Parker has won 894 games at BU, the most by a coach at one school and third-most all time behind current Boston College coach Jerry York and former Michigan State coach Ron Mason. Parker has led the Terriers to the NCAA hockey tournament a record 24 times and has won three national championships.

It's been a tough season for Parker both on and off the ice. In September the Globe obtained documents from a university study which found a “culture of sexual entitlement" surrounding the team. The report was commissioned after two BU players were charged with sexual assault in separate incidents three months apart. Parker was stripped of his title of executive athletic director after the details came to light.

The Terriers finished the 2012-13 regular season with an 18-15-2 record. They'll face Merrimack in the quarterfinals of the Hockey East tournament next weekend.
