Eugene “Gene” Murphy was a three-year letter winner from 1960 – 62 for the University of North Dakota, including serving his senior season as team captain. He quickly moved into an assistant coaching role at UND in 1963 and remained in that position until 1978 when he took over as head coach for Jerry Olson. In honor of Coach Murphy’s huge impact at the University of North Dakota and lifetime of commitment to football, a handful of his former teammates, players and fans have established a scholarship endowment in his name.
In 1980, Gene Murphy was named head football coach at California State University, Fullerton. He coached the team from 1980 to the end of the program in 1992. His team won the Pacific Coast Athletic Association championships in 1983 and 1984. The 1984 team was ranked in the National Top 20. In 1999, Gene Murphy was inducted into the University of North Dakota Hall of Fame and in 2009; Coach Murphy was inducted into the Cal State Fullerton Athletics Hall of Fame.
After Cal State Fullerton dropped its football program, Gene Murphy served as the head coach at Fullerton College from 1993 to 2007. He remained a consultant with the program until 2011.
