After graduation he attended Cumberland College (University of Cumberlands) Ky. He played football and majored in History getting his Bachelor of Science in 1991. He was twice an all conference and all area pick in college.

   Mr Murphy then coached football for one year at Tusculum College in Greeneville Tn. He then joined Greene County Schools as a coach and teacher. He has coached several All State players and was the head coach during the most successful span of football in school history. He has also been highly successful in tennis going to the state tournament 3 times and coaching the top 5 girls in terms of wins in school history and an undefeated girls team.

    Mr Murphy has 4 children Chris, Corlette, Lynette, and Jordan. He enjoys movies, dining out, working out and exploring new towns and venues.

    " An old coach once told me that you may never win a state title, but you will live in the community with most of these boys one day, how do you want them to be a member of your community? I try to teach my boys to become responsible and hard working young men. Hopefully the lessons on the field and in the classroom will carry over into their lives. "
