Vullo Named Head Softball Coach
New England College Director of Athletics Lori Runksmeier is pleased to announce the hiring of Chris Vullo as the new softball coach.
Vullo joins NEC after serving four seasons as the head coach of Daniel Webster College. Vullo made a tremendous impact while at Daniel Webster inheriting a 2-22 squad and turning out a program that finished with an impressive 19-16-1 in 2009, the most single season wins in program history. Last season Vullo’s Eagles hit an impressive .321 and had a team earned run average of 3.36. Daniel Webster returned to post-season play last season for the first time since 2003, advancing to the double-elimination portion of the New England Collegiate Conference Playoffs.
“"I am honored and excited to be taking over the reins of the New England College softball program, said Vullo.” “I am excited about facing the challenges ahead and developing the program into a perennial contender in the Commonwealth Coast Conference.”
In addition to his coaching experience at Daniel Webster Vullo has served as an assistant baseball coach at both Daniel Webster and at DII Franklin Pierce University. Most recently Vullo has coached the U14 New Hampshire Lighting ASA softball team.
Vullo played three seasons at DI Appalachian State and played one season professionally with the Nashua Hawks of the Independent League. Vullo earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Adult/Exercise Science from Auburn University at Montgomery and also has his Masters of Science in Sport Administration from Southern New Hampshire University.
Vullo will take over a program that finished last season with an overall record of 10-28 and has won 20 games over the past two seasons. The Pilgrims are looking to Vullo to get them back to the TCCC Playoffs after a two year absence.
