MURPHY NAMED MEN'S LACROSSE COACH

BOSTON, Massachusetts -- Paul Murphy, who has a wealth of coaching experience at both the high school and college level, has been named Wentworth Institute of Technology's new head men's coach, effective immediately. Director of Athletics Lee Conrad made the announcement.

A native of Newton, Mass. and current resident of Belmont, Mass., Murphy's collegiate coaching experience spans four seasons, having served as the Head Men's Lacrosse Coach at Merrimack College for five seasons (1988-92). He compiled a 41-23 (.641) record during that time, including a 12-1 mark in 1992.

At the high school level, he has coached lacrosse at South Lakes (Reston, Va.) High School, Newton (Mass.) South High School, and, most recently, Walpole (Mass.) High School. In 1984, he was named the Boston Globe All-Scholastic Coach of the Year, while at Newton (Mass.) South High School. In addition to coaching high school lacrosse, Murphy has coached high school wrestling and high school football.

Murphy is a 1986 graduate of the University of Massachusetts Boston with a Bachelor of Science degree in physical education and is currently a physical education teacher at the O'Donnell Middle School in Stoughton, Mass. He earned his Master's degree in education from Boston University in 1999.

"I am excited to bring Paul on board," said Conrad. "He is a very experienced coach at both the high school and college level and will be a tremendous asset to our program."

Murphy becomes the fourth head coach in the program's five seasons of competing at the varsity level. He replaces Aaron Koproski, who resigned after guiding the Leopards to a 7-7 mark during the 2000 season.
