During his tenure at the Heights, Cavanaugh has established himself as one of the nation's finest assistant coaches. He has played an integral role in implementing the program's recruiting strategy that has produced three national titles (2001, 2008 and 2010), seven Hockey East Tournament championships and four league regular-season titles. Individually, 17 players have earned All-America accolades, including 2000 Hobey Baker Award recipient Mike Mottau, and 2008 USA Hockey College Player of the Year Nathan Gerbe. In his 15 seasons, 20 BC players have gone on to play in the National Hockey League.
Cavanaugh has worked extensively with the Eagles' special teams, developing them into some of the country's most formidable units that perennially finish among the nation's elite.

Assistant Coach Greg Brown
Greg Brown, one of the best defensemen in Boston College history, is in his seventh season as a member of Jerry York's staff. He began his coaching career in August of 2004 after completing a 12-year professional playing career.
Brown works closely with the team's defensemen and has worked extensively with special teams.
In his six-year tenure at the Heights, he has played an important role in BC's recent team successes that include four Hockey East Tournament titles, three consecutive Frozen Fours from 2006-08 and two national titles - in 2008 and 2010. Since his arrival, eight players have earned All-America honors.
A 1990 Boston College graduate, Brown was a two-time All-America first-team selection (1989 and 1990), a two-time Hobey Baker Award finalist and a two-time All-New England choice. He is one of only two players in Hockey East history to twice capture the league's Player of the Year honor. In 1994, Brown was one of four defensemen selected to the Hockey East All-Decade Team. He was inducted into Boston College's Varsity Club Hall of Fame in November 2004.
Brown played three seasons for the Eagles (1986-87, 1988-89 and 1989-90), serving as team captain in 1989-90. He missed the 1987-88 season while playing 55 games with U.S. National Team and then representing his country at the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary. Brown totaled 120 points - 24 goals and 96 assists - in 119 games. He ranks among Hockey East career leaders for defenseman scoring in assists (third), points (fourth) and goals (fifth).
Brown played for the United States in two Olympic Games. In addition to the 1988 Games, Brown played for Team USA in the 1992 Olympics in Albertville, France.
After graduation, Brown enjoyed a 12-year professional playing career. He spent four seasons in the National Hockey League, before moving to Europe to continue his career. In the NHL, he played with the Buffalo Sabres (1990-91, 1992-93), Pittsburgh Penguins (1993-94) and Winnipeg Jets (1994-95). In Europe, he played three seasons in Sweden (1995-96, 2001-02 and 2002-03), one season in Switzerland (1996-97) and four seasons in Germany (1997-98 through 2000-01).
Brown's older brother Doug also enjoyed an outstanding playing career - both at Boston College (1982-86) and the NHL. Doug Brown was a two-time All-America second-team selection (1985 and 1986) with the Eagles. He went on to a 15-year career in the NHL. Doug was inducted into the BC Varsity Club Hall of Fame along with Greg in 2004.
Greg and his wife Katharine have two children, Ashley (12) and Peyton (10). They reside in Scituate.
Assistant Coach Jim Logue
Former Eagle goaltender Jim Logue is in his 18th season as a coach at Boston College.
Logue, who starred in net for the Eagles from 1959-1961, came to the Heights from Salem State where he served as an assistant coach for the 1991-92 and 1992-93 seasons.
Logue's tenure at Boston College didn't begin until December 1993, following a successful battle with leukemia. Diagnosed in September 1993 with Hairy Cell Leukemia, Logue entered St. Luke's Hospital in Houston, Texas. There he underwent 90 days of treatment using an innovative new drug to attack the illness. With the illness cured, Logue joined the coaching staff.
Logue has worked closely with the Eagles' goaltenders, molding several into elite goaltenders. Most notably Cory Schneider - the school's only first-team All-America goaltender. Schneider is the single-season record holder for shutouts (eight; 2005-06) and is the school's career leader in shutouts (15). In 1994, Logue watched Greg Taylor stonewall Harvard for the 2-1 Beanpot title victory. For his efforts, Taylor earned Beanpot MVP honors, as Logue himself had done in 1959. Logue also helped Scott Clemmensen (1998-2001) develop into one of college hockey's premier goaltenders. As a freshman, Clemmensen had established a NCAA regular-season record by holding opponents scoreless for 254:23. Clemmensen completed his college career as the school's career leader in wins (99) and shutouts (13), and the NCAA Tournament's career leader in wins (10) and saves (356).
Prior to his stint at Salem State, Logue was head coach at North Andover High School from 1980-1986. He also served two terms as assistant coach at Merrimack College -- from 1983-88 and from 1969-1978. While at Merrimack, Logue also served as a coach in the U.S. Olympic Program from 1972-1976.
The starting goaltender for the first game played in McHugh Forum (the Eagles' former home rink), Logue was a three-time All-East and All-New England selection (1959-1961) during his time at the Heights. His 2.17 goals against average in 1960-61 still ranks among the school's best.
Logue led the Eagles to Beanpot championships in 1959 and 1961, capturing Most Valuable Player honors for his performance in the 1959 tournament.
Logue was the goaltender on the 1968 U.S. Olympic squad. He recorded 65 saves versus the former Soviet Union in the Olympic Tournament.
A member of the Boston College Varsity Club Hall of Fame, Logue's hockey excellence was further recognized in 1999 when he was one of the initial three former players whose BC jersey was retired.
Jim and his wife Carina are the parents of five children. They reside in North Andover.
