The New York Rangers hired Boston University’s David Quinn as their new head coach Wednesday [url=[http://www.cowboyscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-travis-frederick-jersey]Travis Frederick Jersey[/url] , the second college coach hired by an NHL team this month and third in the past four years.
Quinn replaces Alain Vigneault, who was fired hours after the Rangers missed the playoffs for the first time since 2010. An introductory news conference was scheduled for Thursday.

”In a coaching career that has spanned over two decades at the collegiate, pro, and international level, David has helped his teams achieve success while simultaneously teaching the game and helping his players develop on and off the ice,” general manager Jeff Gorton said. ”He is the ideal choice to bring our loyal and passionate fans the winning hockey they deserve.”

The 51-year-old Quinn coached Boston University to four NCAA Tournament appearances in five seasons, including a trip to the national title game in 2015. He spent the lockout-shortened 2013 NHL season as an assistant on Joe Sacco’s staff with the Colorado Avalanche.

”David brings a diverse and successful coaching resume that includes extensive work in developing young talent,” Rangers owner James Dolan said. ”I am confident he is an excellent fit for our team, and know he will work tirelessly with (team president Glen Sather) [url=http://www.cowboyscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-jason-witten-jersey]Jason Witten Jersey[/url] , Jeff and our entire organization to execute our plan to build the next Rangers Stanley Cup-contending team.”

The Rangers made the playoffs in four of Vigneault’s five seasons as coach, including a 2014 trip to the Stanley Cup Final. They went 226-147-37 in the regular season under Vigneault, who is third in regular-season and playoff wins in franchise history.

The retooling Rangers are the latest team to dip into the college ranks for a coach after the Philadelphia Flyers hired Dave Hakstol from North Dakota in 2015 and the Dallas Stars hired Jim Montgomery from the University of Denver in early May. Before Hakstol, it had been 28 years since a coach made the jump from the NCAA to the NHL.



More NHL hockey: The Tennessee Titans wanted to wrap up their offseason with a trip to Fort Campbell.

With soldiers at the Army post busy right now, the NFL team spent the final session of minicamp with police officers.

The Titans made the very short trip to the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department's training center near the team's headquarters and learned about how officers are trained , use of force and gun safety .

"We thought that we would mix some gun safety in with interaction with the police department," coach Mike Vrabel said Thursday.

"There was a lot of chiefs, there was 30 police officers, there was cadets. Our guys got to work one-on-one [url=http://www.ramscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-lamarcus-joyner-jersey]Lamarcus Joyner Jersey[/url] , and those guys were the coaches for the day. We tried to listen and pay attention the best we could, and had a little fun along the way."

The Titans also shot guns on the range, a first for Vrabel. The coach said the Titans met with NFL officials Wednesday going over league policies, which include no firearms allowed at a team's building, parking lot or hotel. Vrabel said no, this visit was not tied to the national anthem.

"This is about us being with the police officers in our community and gun safety," Vrabel said.

The Titans wrapped up the session, returned to the team's building and then players scattered for their last break before reporting for training camp July 25.

Quarterbacks, injured players and rookies will be due back July 22.

Even with the offseason ending [url=http://www.texanscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-martinas-rankin-jersey]Martinas Rankin Jersey[/url] , the Titans finished some business Thursday afternoon by signing rookie linebacker Harold Landry to his contract to wrap up their four-man draft class. Landry, a popular choice to go in the first round of many mock drafts, fell to No. 41 where the Titans traded up to select him .

The linebacker ranked second in school history at Boston College with 26 sacks and second with 47陆 tackles for loss.

Vrabel is expecting everyone under contract to be at training camp, though Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan is the only question mark with Landry's contract finished. Lewan worked out with the Titans during most of the offseason program, then skipped this week's mandatory minicamp wanting a new contract .

"I would expect all players, all coaches, and all personnel staff to be here under contract," Vrabel said of Lewan. "But, do I think he will? I have no idea."

Only right tackle Jack Conklin is not expected to be ready for the start of training camp. Conklin is recovering from surgery to repair a torn left ACL hurt in the Titans' divisional playoff loss at New England.

Wide receivers Rishard Matthews [url=http://www.ramscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-greg-zuerlein-jersey]Greg Zuerlein Jersey[/url] , who watched the offseason sessions open to reporters, and Corey Davis, limited over the past week, are expected to be available.

Vrabel reminded the Titans before they left to get as much personal business handled before training camp as possible. He also told them about the countdown clock he keeps on his phone.

"We're 87 days from our first game," the first-time head coach said. "I think that starts to put things in perspective, and when I say that I get excited to be in this position. 87 days from a real NFL football game. That was the first message, that we're that close."

Notes: The Titans had four players in minicamp and signed WR Brandon Shippen and CB Jarell Carter on Thursday. They waived WR Zach Pascal and CB Jeremy Boykins to clear roster space. Shippen came into the NFL as an undrafted free agent and has been with Miami, the Rams and Chiefs. Carter was undrafted out of Trinity International and spent two months on Arizona's practice squad last year.
