Gilmore Relieved of Coaching Duties
WORCESTER, Mass. – Holy Cross Director of Athletics Nathan Pine announced Sunday morning that Tom Gilmore has been relieved of his duties as head football coach, effective immediately.
“These are never pleasant decisions, but ultimately I believe this is the best course of action for our student-athletes and for the success of our football program moving forward,” said Pine. "I would like to take this opportunity to thank Tom for his tireless efforts on behalf of our student-athletes and service to the College. Tom has been a mentor to our student-athletes and a positive presence in our campus community for his 14 years at Holy Cross."
Gilmore has served as the Crusaders’ head coach for 14 seasons, beginning in 2004. During his tenure, the team posted an overall record of 72-81 (.471) with a 41-39 (.513) mark in Patriot League play and one postseason appearance (2009).
Offensive coordinator Brian Rock will assume the interim head coach role for the Crusaders for the remainder of the 2017 football season.
A national search for Gilmore’s replacement will begin immediately.
