Revere will hire Michael Murphey as its new football coach, Superintendent Randy Boroff and Athletic Director Bill Schumacher announced.
Murphey is set to leave Case Western Reserve University to take over as Revere’s football coach. He was CWRU’s offensive line coach and a guidance counselor at Kenston.
Murphey will officially be appointed Feb. 19 at the school board meeting. He has 12 years of coaching experience, including four at the college level. Murphey began his coaching career as an assistant at John Carroll University, his alma mater. He also worked at Trinity, Chagrin Falls and Kenston as offensive or defensive coordinator. He was selected to coach the East squad in the Cuyahoga County East/West All-Star Game in 2007.
Murphey, who was chosen from a field of over 60 candidates, will work as a secondary level guidance counselor dividing his day between Revere Middle School and High School. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and a Master’s Degree in School Counseling from JCU.
“We are pleased to have Mike join the staff at Revere,” Boroff said. “With his experiences and successes, we feel he is the right person to establish new expectations, create new traditions of excellence and develop an atmosphere of excitement for all of our students and especially our football program.”
