Greg Gilmore, a 2012 graduate of Southern Vermont College, was named the 18th SVC head men's soccer coach in May 2016.
Gilmore brought a strong deal of playing and coaching experience to the position as well as a keen familiarity with the College. Six years after graduating, he still holds the record for the most games started in team history with 73. His defensive prowess helped lead the Mountaineers to three-straight New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) playoff appearances, the team getting all the way to the league’s championship game in both 2010 and 2011.
Prior to returning to SVC, Gilmore had most recently been the head coach and director of coaching for Maximum Velocity FC in Lee, N.H. since November of 2014 while also heading the boys’ varsity team at Farmington High School in Farmington, N.H. since June ‘14. In his stint at Farmington, he led the team to its first playoff victory in 39 years. Prior to that, Gilmore was on the other side of the ball from SVC as he was an assistant and goalkeepers coach at Newbury College, an NECC foe, for the 2013 season.
He received his Bachelors of Science in History & Politics from SVC in 2012 and earned a Master of Business Administration in Athletic Administration from Southern New Hampshire University in 2018.
Additionally, Gilmore was a three-year player for the Southern Vermont baseball team, being on the SVC pitching staff that helped the squad go to the NECC postseason in both 2010 and 2011 while falling in the championship round in the latter of those years.
Gilmore also assumes the role of SVC's Athletic Communications Assistant and helps the department by providing support for the maintenance of the Mountaineers’ website and social media accounts, helping with the statistical tracking and reporting for home contests, and supervising the work study event staff.
