This is following her recent 2016 state championship!


Annually, the NFHS identifies and recognizes a coach from each state for significant achievement in their sport. State level recipients are considered for NFHS Sectional recognition. National Coaches of the Year are then chosen from the sectional winners. Award recipients are selected based upon a variety of criteria including their coaching record, background, coaching honors, and involvement in community and school organizations.

After graduating from the University of Kansas in 1997, Murphy has been a high school mathematics teacher for the past 17 years at Middleton High School and is starting her first year of teaching at Verona Area High School for the 2016-2017 school year. She has been the varsity girls basketball coach at VAHS since 2003 and lives in Verona with her husband and two children.

Each year approximately 1000 coaches are recognized at the state level, 168 coaches are recognized at the sectional level and 21 coaches are recognized at the national level. Wisconsin coaches are members of Section 4, which represents the states of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

The mission of the NFHS Coaches Association is to enhance the professional development of all high school sports coaches in order to improve interscholastic athletics in America.
