Scott Van Zile Joins Gilman as Head Football Coach

Gilman School is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Scott Van Zile to the position of head football coach and physical education teacher at the School. Coach Van Zile brings a wealth of experience as a long-time Division I college football assistant coach and a current head coach at neighboring St. Paul's School for Boys.

Coach Van Zile's college coaching resume includes 13 years at Monmouth University, as well as stints at Elon University and Towson University, where he is an alumnus. His focus at the college level was the offensive side of the ball, where he has coached a variety of positions and served as an offensive coordinator. Coach Van Zile also served as the recruiting coordinator at Towson.

Coach Van Zile spent the past two years leading St. Paul's football program and teaching physical education in their middle school. In that short time, he became a beloved figure on campus to boys and teachers alike.

"The future of Gilman football is bright as we welcome Coach Van Zile into the Greyhound family," said Director of Athletics T. Russell Wrenn '96 in a letter to the Gilman community.

Coach Van Zile met with the Gilman football team at lunchtime, and he also met with families in the early evening. There will be future opportunities to hear from Coach Van Zile as he moves into his new role.

Welcome, Coach Van Zile!
