More than a decade after playing on the 2008 Dracut High School Super Bowl Championship team, alumnus Jordan Murphy is returning to his alma mater on Lakeview Avenue to assume the reins of the Middie football team.
Upon graduation from Dracut High School in 2009, Murphy headed south to Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, Florida. While a student at Division 1 Bethune-Cookman, he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree and played football for four years. 
After graduating, he remained at Bethune-Cookman and earned a Master’s degree. Murphy served as the Assistant Director of Football Operations at Bethune-Cookman and has also coached high school sports in Massachusetts.

 He will bring all of those experiences back to Dracut High to lead Middies football. “We are excited that Jordan Murphy will be joining the Middies athletic program as our varsity head football coach. Murphy is a former Middie who knows our school, our athletic programs, our traditions, and our aspirations for our student-athletes. He also brings the knowledge and experience gained from playing Division 1 football home to Dracut,” said Dracut High Principal Richard Manley.
“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," said Dracut Athletic Director Trevor Blanchet. "We are thrilled to welcome him back to Dracut, and I am excited about the future of Middie football with Coach Murphy at the helm.”
