Gilmartin now enters his fourth season at the helm of the Salve Regina football program. Last season the Seahawks went 8-2 overall and 5-2 in the New England Football Conference (NEFC) and won the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Clayton Chapman Bowl. This past season was the 5th consecutive year of Post-Season Play for the Seahawks. Gilmartin's squad averaged 36.7 points and 467.7 yards per game overall on offense. The Seahawks also once again reset the program record for total yards in a season with 4,677 yards. For the fourth straight season the team reset the program single season mark for passing touchdowns with 33 in 2015.
The Seahawks were ranked in the Top 10 in the NCAA National rankings- QB Brandan Basil (Passing TDs), RB Sam Pascale (Rushing Yards per Game) and WR Alex Hulme (Receiving TDs and All-Purpose Yards). SRU was the only D3 to have a Top 10 QB, RB and WR- and one of only 2 teams to do it in all divisions.
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.
