By any measure, Tim Murphy has led Harvard's storied football program to its most prosperous era since the early 20th century. He looks to continue that trend in 2019, as he enters his 26th season as the Thomas Stephenson Family Head Coach for Harvard Football. Murphy is Harvard's first endowed coach.
Murphy was named head football coach at Harvard Dec. 6, 1993. He came from the University of Cincinnati, where that fall he had directed the Division I-A Bearcats to their finest record in 17 years. This success came after Murphy inherited a program that had a condemned stadium, no practice facilities and the loss of 19 scholarships after being placed on probation for infractions incurred by the previous coaching staff. He attained all of his short-term goals, including NCAA compliance, an improved graduation rate (Cincinnati was recognized by the College Football Association for being one of only 20 Division I schools to graduate a minimum of 70 percent of its most recent recruiting class), reconstructing the strength and conditioning program and development of a successful major college team. When Murphy took over at Cincinnati in 1989, he was only 32 years old, one of two Division I head coaches that young.
One of the game’s finest teachers and motivators over the last quarter-century, Murphy is Harvard’s all-time winningest coach, and since the formation of the Ivy League in 1956, only one Ivy coach has more wins than his 174. His Harvard teams have captured nine Ivy League championships (1997, 2001, ’04, ’07, ’08, ’11, ‘13, ‘14, ‘15) and have combined to own the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision’s second-best record over the last 18 seasons (141-38, .788). Since 1994, Harvard has had 123 first-team All-Ivy League selections, six Ivy Rookies of the Year, nine Ivy Players of the Year, nine first-team All-Americans and 25 players who have been drafted or signed professional contracts, including six-time Pro Bowl center Matt Birk ’98, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick ’05 and tight end Cameron Brate ‘14. In addition, 20 of Murphy’s Harvard players have received national academic recognition (either CoSIDA Academic All-America or the FCS All-Academic Team). Before sending two players to the CoSIDA Academic All-American team in 2008, Harvard had a national-best six players recognized on the All-District 1 team.
Harvard capped the 2018 campaign by defeating Yale, 45-27, in the highest scoring episode of The Game. The Crimson earned 13 All-Ivy selections, including five on the first team, and finished 6-4 overall and 4-3 in the Ivy League.
