Gavin became Dublin manager in 2013, replacing Pat Gilroy. He led Dublin to the 2013 All-Ireland, beating Kerry in the final. For that, Gavin was named 2013 Philips Sports Manager of the Year.

In 2019 he completed the ultimate feat as he oversaw the completion of the five-in-a-row. At the time Gavin said he would sit down with the county board and review his position.

He leaves having secured six All-Ireland titles, seven Leinster Championships and five National Leagues.
