BOSTON - Former Bowling Green Falcon hockey coach Jerry York will have surgery today to repair a detached retina in his right eye.
York, currently the head coach of fifth-ranked Boston College, was not on the bench Saturday night for his team's win over Vermont that completed a sweep of the best-of-3 Hockey East quarterfinal series.
He coached the Eagles during their Game 1 victory Friday, but experienced vision problems Saturday morning.
The surgery will be York's second for a detached retina this year and each time it has been to his right eye. He missed four games in January.
No timetable has been set for his return.
York, who guided BG to an NCAA championship in 1984, is the winningest coach in NCAA history.
The Eagles, 22-10-4 overall, return to action Friday night when they face No. 18 Boston University (20-15-2).
Associate head coaches Mike Cavanaugh and assistant coach Greg Brown will coach the team in York's absence. Cavanaugh was an assistant coach at BG under York during the 1992-93 season.
