Tom Mutch is the former and most recent coach of the Boston College women's ice hockey team. In four years as head coach of the women's ice hockey program at Boston College, Mutch revitalized a lagging program. During the 2006-2007 season, Mutch led the Boston College Eagles to their first ever NCAAFrozen Four appearance. Additionally, he led the Eagles to the first Beanpot Tournament Trophy in 2006, and repeated in 2007. As head coach of the women's hockey program, he was named Hockey East Coach of the Year in 2005 and 2007.
On April 24, 2007, Tom Mutch resigned as head coach of the women's ice hockey program. The resignation came in the wake of an inappropriate relationship with Kelli Stack, a freshman who was the Hockey East Player and Rookie of the Year. The Boston Herald had printed an article earlier that day that detailed the alleged explicit text messaging that occurred between the married Tom Mutch and Stack. Tom Mutch is currently married to a former women's hockey player, and is the father of a newborn baby girl.
