About Our Coaches
Eileen O’Reilly begins her sixth season as the head coach of the Red Hawks in 2020. She became the 17th coach in program history in June 2015.
In her first four seasons, Coach O’Reilly has fashioned a 62-19 record which includes berths in the NCAA Division III Field Hockey Championship each of the last three seasons, a feat accomplished only one other time in program history.
Eileen led Montclair State to a 15-5 record and a berth in the NJAC semifinals in her first season. The Red Hawks finished the year ranked 11th by the NFHCA and placed three players on the All-NJAC Team, including Megan Roeloffs who would later be chosen to the NFHCA Division III All-American Second Team. In 2019, Nicole Andriani became the first 2x All-American in program history. Nicole also was the NJAC Goalkeeper of the Year. Nicole and teammate Elizabeth Cimilluca were named to the NFHCA South Atlantic All-Region team.
Last season the Red Hawks registered their third consecutive 15-win season under Coach O’Reilly and were once again a fixture in the NFHCA Division III Poll finishing the season in the Top 15. MSU won its first 12 contests, it longest winning streak in four years which helped Montclair earn an at-large berth into the NCAA Tournament.
Eileen came to Montclair in 2013 and spent the first season as an assistant coach before being elevated to Associate Head Coach in December 2014. Montclair put together a 35-7 mark in those two years. Prior to her arrival at MSU, Eileen enjoyed two successful seasons as the top assistant at Manhattanville College.
Eileen arrived at Manhattanville after a decorated four-year career on the field hockey field at Franklin & Marshall College, where she was a four-year starter and senior captain for the Diplomats. She was named to the NFHCA All-South Region and All-Centennial Conference first team as a senior after scoring nine goals with 11 assists for a career-high 29 points, following up an All-Conference second-team honor in 2009. She finished her career as the school's all-time leader in assists (35) and game-winning goals (eight), while also ranking fifth in points (95) and ninth in goals (30). Off the field, O'Reilly was a four-time NFHCA and Centennial Conference Academic Honor Roll honoree and the 2011 recipient of the Karvasales Award, which is given to a Franklin & Marshall female senior athlete with cumulative outstanding athletic achievements over a four-year period. She was selected as the Centennial Conference's nominee for the 2011 NCAA Woman of the Year Award and participated in the conference's 2011 Snell-Shillingford coaching symposium.
O'Reilly graduated from Franklin & Marshall in May 2011 with a bachelor's degree in Spanish and American Studies, graduating magna cum laude and as a member of Phi Beta Kappa. A native of Briarcliff, NY, O'Reilly also earned her master's degree at Manhattanville in Education.

We traveled from another state to attend this camp so our daughter could get exposure to a different group of players and coaches. We have had good experiences Revolution camps in the past and this camp was no exception. Very well run camp.
We really appreciated the individual attention the coaches gave to our daughter. They really took the time to go over what she needs to work on to improve her game. She asked to bring her stick on our family vacation; just to be sure she is ready for pre-season a couple of weeks away.
I had such a good time at camp. The coaches were great, and so was the food. We had so much fun staying in the dorms like we were in college.
