Early life[edit]

Gilmore was born in Wichita, Kansas on March 21, 1967, and graduated from Wichita South High School, where he lettered in football, basketball and track.

Playing career[edit]

Gilmore's college playing career began in 1986 at the Butler Community College, where he played Wide Receiver, after the conclusion of his high school career at Wichita South. He transferred to Wyoming after two years, earning second-team All-Western Athletic Conference honors in his senior year. Two years later, in 1991, he completed his bachelor’s degree in Sociology at Wyoming.[2]

Coaching career[edit]

Gilmore began his football coaching career in 1994 at his alma mater Wyoming, as a Graduate Assistant Coach under Joe Tiller. He worked with the tight ends and Wide Receivers, including two-time All-American and Biletnikoff Award winner Marcus Harris. In 1997, Gilmore was promoted to Wide Receivers Coach, and served another two years at Wyoming.

Gilmore spent 1999 as the Tight Ends Coach at Kansas, and the following year served as Tight Ends Coach at Houston, before rejoining Tiller at Purdue as Wide Receivers Coach in 2001. Gilmore coached all-time NCAA reception leader Taylor Stubblefield as well as Big Ten all-time career receptions leader John Standeford.

In 2003, Gilmore was hired by Colorado, again as Wide Receivers Coach, and worked alongside Shawn Watson, with whom he would later work with at Nebraska. While at Colorado, Gilmore coached all-Big 12 and future Seattle Seahawks receiver D. J. Hackett to a school record 78 receptions as a senior.

Since being hired by then-Head Coach Bill Callahan in 2005, Gilmore has served as Wide Receivers Coach at Nebraska, while also serving as the coaching staff's Recruiting Coordinator. Since joining Nebraska, receivers Terrance Nunn and Maurice Purify finished ranked as the #2 and #5 career receivers at the University, with Nunn finishing just seven yards short of the all-time school record held by Johnny Rodgers and Purify finishing just short of the school's all-time receptions record. In 2007, the Nebraska receivers helped the team to a #8 national ranking in passing offense and a #11 ranking in total offense. At the conclusion of the 2007 season, Gilmore was retained in his previous duties by new Nebraska Head Coach Bo Pelini while also being promoted to Assistant Head Coach.

After the 2010 season Bo Pellini did not renew his contract,never talking to Gilmore, and on February 24, 2011 Gilmore was named Wide Receivers Coach at USC.[3]

In February 2012, Gilmore was hired by new Raiders coach Dennis Allen to replace the departed Sanjay Lal as Oakland's Wide Receivers coach. [4]
