Gilmartin now enters his third season at the helm of the Salve Regina football program. Last season the Seahawks went 7-4 overall and 5-2 in the New England Football Conference (NEFC) and won the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Northeast Bowl.

Gilmartin's squad averaged 31.7 points and 410.6 yards per game overall on offense and 32.9 points and 418.6 yards per game against conference opponents. The Seahawks also once again reset the program record for total yards in a season with 4,517 yards and all-purpose yards with 5,908 yards. For the third straight season the team reset the program single season mark for passing touchdowns with 31 in 2014.

Gilmartin joined the Seahawk football coaching staff in 2012 and helped lead the squad to a divisional title. Salve Regina reached the NEFC championship game for only the second time in its history (first since 2000). 

Within the special teams game, Gilmartin was directly involved with coaching the return specialists which led to All-American honors for then second-year player Phil Terio (Trumbull, Conn.).

As an assistant coach at Mount Ida College, Gilmartin worked five seasons handling the responsibilities of offensive coordinator, recruiting coordinator, quarterbacks coach, running backs coach, and admissions liaison. He helped lead the team to three consecutive postseason appearances, advancing to the ECFC title game in 2009, as well as the ECAC North Atlantic Bowl in both 2010 and 2011. The Mustangs set program records for both points and total yards in a season, and Gilmartin was selected to coach in the 2010 All-American Bowl.

Gilmartin gained further collegiate coaching experience as a special teams/assistant running backs coach at Hofstra (Division I-AA) and a quarterbacks/defensive backs coach at Hamilton (Division III) for five years. Coach Gilmartin also spent two seasons at Nipmuc Regional High School where he became the school's all-time winningest head coach.
