GregSullivanNewberry Greg Sullivan, who spent four seasons as the head coach at Newbury College, has been named an assistant coach for the Boston College baseball team.

Sullivan comes from Wofford College where he was recently named an assistant coach in June.

"Greg brings a tremendous amount of life and energy to our program," head coach Mike Gambino said. "Besides playing for legendary Coach Holowaty at Eastern Connecticut, Greg has earned a great reputation around New England for his relentless work ethic on the recruiting trail and how fair and honest he is with recruits and their families. It says a lot about him that his first job after his playing career was as a head coach."

Sullivan was named Newbury College’s first head coach in January 2007 and began laying the groundwork for the development of the program. In 2008, he was named the national Coach of the Year by the Association of Division Three Independents. The Nighthawks earned the New England Collegiate Conference Sportsmanship Award in each of the last two seasons.

"Greg started a program at Newbury College from the ground up and in four short years turned them into a very respectable club," Gambino said. "As a player, Greg was a tireless worker whose love of the game was evident when you saw him play, and he is the same way as a coach. I have known Greg since he was 15 years old and I am very excited to work with him."

Sullivan graduated from Eastern Connecticut State in 2006 with a degree in communications. He was a four-year starter for Bill Holowaty and led the Warriors to three Division III national tournament appearances, finishing second in 2004.
