  1. I played Bishop Montgomery Basketball for Coach Murphy the last two years, which were 10th and 11th grade for me. And I can say that I’ve never met anyone like him. He was a great coach and one of a kind on and off the floor. Although there will be others similar,there will only be one Coach Murphy and he will be missed in some kind of way by all who knew him. By being coached by a man like Murphy I am one step closer to be coming a man. R.I.P. Coach Murphy Your JV Captain SeDale Barkley 2008-2009 Class 2010

  2. There are so many things I can say about Coach Murphy, as he was not only a coach but a life teacher as well. He taught me the deepest meaning of every problem I had. He was there for everyone, and he will be very deeply missed. He will remain in the hearts of those who knew him. God bless you coach. R.I.P. Gibran Sewani

  3. As a member of two of his basketball teams I can attest to coach Murphy’s exceptional abilities as a coach and teacher. He leaves us with the indelible impression which marks the passage of all great men. He passed from us too soon and all who knew him will mourn and miss him. Rest in peace Coach.

  4. Coach Murphy inspired us. He was tough too. Made us strong and proud. I will never forget him saying “WINNERS NEVER QUIT! AND QUITTERS NEVER WIN.” Rest in Peace Coach. Ben Rocha, Our Lady of the Rosary ’72 Pius X ’76

  5. Mike Murphy molded me, an average baseball player, into a great baseball player. Granted, this was all little league baseball in the 60s but I’ve always cherished those days playing for him. At first, I was afraid of him. That was only because he wanted us to be our best and got mad that we couldn’t see what he saw. And when he saw glimpses of us reaching a higher level of playing, he would praise us then ask for more! He knew we were capable of something better and demanded it of us. By the way, when you were praised by Coach Murphy, it meant something. During those years, I learned I was better than average and that I had a gift. Coach Murphy saw that and he knew how to make us see that. God bless, Mike. I can see you playing in some heavenly field of dreams, rubbing elbows with your favorite ballplayers and having a great time. All the kids you ever coached will miss you. Especially me. Paul Rodriguez Our Lady of the Rosary Class of 1967
