IBUH: Quinn, Somerby, Cahoon--UPDATED

Episode 22 of Inside BU Hockey features Bernie Corbett’s interviews with Coach David Quinn, sophomore blueliner Doyle Somerby and former Terrier forward and assistant coach—and UMass head coach—Don “Toot” Cahoon.  Marblehead, Mass. Native Somerby played three seasons at Kimball Union Academy, helping the Wildcats win the Prep Small School tournament championship in 2012 and teaming with current Terriers John MacLeod, Nick Roberto and AJ Greer. He was a fifth round Islanders draft choice in the 2012 entry draft.

Also a Marblehead native, Cahoon (photo) was a standout forward on BU’s back-to-back national championship teams in 1971 and 1972, scoring 96 points in three varsity seasons. After five seasons as a Terrier assistant under Jack Parker and his first head coaching turn at Norwich, Cahoon took on the top spot at Princeton in 1990 and in 1997-98 led the Tigers to their first and only ECAC tournament title. In 2000, he became head coach at UMass, a position he held for twelve seasons. In recent years, he’s served as a game and studio analyst for college hockey broadcasts.
