Gary Tranquill is an American football coach and the current offensive coordinator for the Boston College Eagles college football team.[1]

He was previously the 32nd head coach for the United States Naval Academy Midshipmen located in Annapolis, Maryland and he held that position for five seasons, from 1982 until 1986. His coaching record at United States Naval Academy was 20 wins, 34 losses, and 1 tie. As of the conclusion of the 2007 season, this ranks him 12th at United States Naval Academy in total wins and 31st at United States Naval Academy in winning percentage (0.373). [2]

Tranquill then joined the staff of George Welsh, who had preceded him as Navy's head coach, at Virginia. As quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator, Tranquill coached Cavalier standouts Scott Secules, Shawn Moore, and Matt Blundin. After the 1990 season in which Virginia attained a #1 ranking behind a potent offense, Tranquill became the quarterbacks coach for the Cleveland Browns from 1991-1993. He later returned to the college ranks at Virginia Tech, Michigan State, a second stint at Virginia, and finally at North Carolina before his retirement.

After a brief retirement, Tranquill joined the Rhein Fire of NFL Europa where he served as the quarterbacks coach for one season.

In January 2009 he was hired by Frank Spaziani to become the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for Boston College.
