Colby College has announced a $2 million endowment for naming its Head Men’s Hockey Coach position for Jack Kelley. Before spending ten highly successful years at the Terriers’ helm, Kelley turned Colby into a New England powerhouse posting an 89-51-5 record and earning NCAA Coach of the Year honors in 1962, the first “small college” coach so honored. Stepping behind the bench of his alma mater in 1962, Kelley’s BU teams won six Beanpot titles, one ECAC title and two NCAA titles en route to a 206-80-8 record and a .720 winning percentage. After coaching and being a general manger with the New England Whalers, Kelley returned to Colby for a final season in 1976-77 and recorded his 300th college win.
