The Boston University hockey team is one of the best teams in the country and they are looking to get back to the Frozen Four for the second time since 2015. Now they have made history by becoming the first Division I hockey program with a full-time female employee.
It was reported on Thursday that the Terriers had hired Brittany Muller as their director of hockey operations. She is believed to be the first full-time female employee in DI hockey history.
“We have known Brittany for a long time and she has really helped this program run efficiently over the last five years,” head coach David Quinn said in a released statement. “When the director of hockey operations job opened up, it was an easy decision to make. She is incredibly smart and driven, and she gets along well with people. Brittany loves BU and we’re very fortunate to keep her here with our program.”
This is a huge step forward for collegiate hockey and it will be interesting to see how the rest of the country follows their lead.
