Gilmartin now enters his fifth season at the helm of the Salve Regina football program. Last season the Seahawks went 8-2 overall and 6-1 in the New England Football Conference (NEFC) and hosted the first ever New England Bowl versus Framingham State.  This past season was the 6th consecutive year of Post-Season Play for the Seahawks.  Gilmartin's squad averaged 41.2 points and 463.3 yards per game overall on offense.

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). 

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.

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.

Gilmartin resides in Portsmouth, RI with his daughter Lainey.
