Tyson Murphy looks to bring his passion for running to the MC Cross Country squad. 2017-18 will be Tyson's 12th year at the helm of the harrier programs. Murphy has directed the men's and women's programs since the fall of 2006, earning four GSAC Coach of the Year accolades, a USA South Coach of the Year nod and four conference titles.
