Greg Vreeland - Offensive Coordinator, Quarterback and Running Backs Coach
Greg did an outstanding job coaching Quarterbacks and Wide Receivers at ECP in 2015. and has now returned to us with a lot more experience, having coached Running Backs at MIT in 2017. MIT is one of the top academic institutions in the world, but is also gaining a reputation for having a fine football program in the highly competitive NEWMAC conference.
While coaching running backs at MIT, Greg was instrumental in the development of top running back John Robertson, a first team all conference selection.
Having gained experience coaching at the college level, Greg returns to ECP with enlarged responsibilities. He will serve as offensive coordinator, as well as coaching quarterbacks and running backs..
A 2014 graduate of Castleton State College, Vreeland was a four-year letter winner at quarterback for the Spartans. During his senior season, Vreeland led the team to the first bowl game in the school's history. However, his leadership did not end on the gridiron. For his senior season he led the team as an academic captain, which required him to organize team study halls and keep academic standards on the team high. In addition, he also played varsity baseball for the Spartans and assisted in their 2013 run to the NCAA tournament.After graduating Castleton State College, Vreeland joined their coaching staff as the wide receivers coach. While as a member of the staff Vreeland coached a number of players to the best year of their collegiate career. Two of his receivers went on to get all-conference honors and one was the conference player of the year. Furthermore, the team saw the largest turnaround in all of D-2I, as their record went up by six games.
Greg's all around experience and knowledge of both the football and the academic aspects of life at ECP should be a great help to the players who come under his tutelage.
