After graduating from the University of Delaware, he began umpiring in the minor leagues in 1982, eventually reaching the American Association before being promoted to the NL. He officiated in the World Series in (2004, and 2009) and in the 1998 and 2009 All-Star Games.

Gorman appeared as a "stranger" on the TV game show Identity. When the contestant identified him correctly as a Major League Umpire, he replied by saying "You're safe" and making the baseball safe signal (moving the arms across each other below the waist).
