Greg is in his 10th season as an assistant coach for the Boston College baseball team. He primarily works with outfielders and hitters and is also responsible for running Boston College Baseball Camps. The Eagles were sixth in the ACC in hitting with a .289 batting average in 2019. All-ACC Second Team selection Sal Frelick transitioned from the infield to the outfield and hit .367 with a .513 slugging percentage, while playing error-free in the outfield.

Sullivan has helped multiple players transition from the infield to the outfield and fill key roles for the Eagles. Michael Strem – a 2016 New England Intercollegiate Baseball Associate (NEIBA) All-New England Second-Team honoree – and Logan Hoggarth and Gabriel Hernandez came to the Heights as infielders and moved to the outfield.

BC’s outfield in 2017 made just seven errors in 423 chances. Overall, the BC fielding percentage as a team was .975, fourth in record books.

In 2016, Sullivan helped the Eagles record a .972 fielding percentage, tied for fifth in BC record books. In the team’s first trip to the NCAA Tournament since 2009, the Eagles registered a .991 fielding clip in six games and the outfield did not make an error while recording two assists.

Before coming to The Heights, Sullivan spent four seasons as the head coach at Newbury College. He was named the 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 III Independents. The Nighthawks earned the New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) Sportsmanship Award in each of his last two seasons.

Sullivan has largely been involved in recruitment, including his time at Boston College and Newbury College. He also worked with player recruitment when he was the hitting coach for the Manchester Silkworms of the New England Collegiate Baseball League during the summers of 2007-08, as well as with the Carolina Chaos of the Southern Collegiate Baseball League in the 2006 summer.

In 2009 and 2010, he was the assistant tournament director of the Division III New England Baseball Regional Tournament and was also a representative for the NECC to the All-New England Committee.

A 2006 graduate of Eastern Connecticut State, Sullivan earned his bachelor’s 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. He was also the recipient of the Francis E. Geissler Sportsperson of the Year his senior year, as well as the Rick Ganoe Coach’s Award and was named the team captain.
