Another Murphy (Jordan) to Coach Dracut Football

April 6, 2019

DRACUT -- Jordan Murphy has been named as the new head football coach at Dracut High School.

Murphy, who graduated from DHS in 2009, played on the Middies’ 2008 Super Bowl championship team coaches by his uncle, Pat Murphy.

He went on to play football as a 6-2, 245-pound tight end for Division 1 Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, Florida, where he earned his Bachelor of Arts and Master’s degrees.

Murphy’s coaching experience includes a stint as assistant director of football operations at Bethune-Cookman.

“Coach Murphy is a former Middie who knows our school, our athletic programs, our traditions, and our aspirations for our student-athletes,” said DHS Principal Richard Manley. “He also brings the knowledge and experience gained from playing Division 1 football home to Dracut.”

Added Athletic Director Trevor Blanchet: “Coach Murphy is an educator whose passion for the sport and experience as a college player and coach will bring energy to our football program and our school. I am excited about the future of Middie football.”

Murphy attended Ayer High School as a freshman and sophomore, Dracut High as a junior and senior, then Bridgton Academy for a year.

He is no relation to the late Ed Murphy, the legendary long-time Dracut coach.
