Stony Brook to join CAA Football in 2013

A new era of Stony Brook Football in the premier FCS conference to begin in 2013.

Mark Murray completed his fourth season as Stony Brook's tight ends coach in 2013.

Will Tye, a Florida State transfer, added a new dimension to the Stony Brook offense, using his 6-3, 260-pound frame to stretch opposing defenses. Tye accounted for 520 yards and four touchdowns in his first season as a Seawolf.

Murray's tight ends have been instrumental in Stony Brook rushing attack, which produced back-to-back 3,000-yard seasons in 2011 and 2012.

From 2010-12, Stony Brook's offense produced two 1,000-yard rushers.

Murray's experience also includes a four-season stint at Yale from 2006-09

Prior to joining the Bulldogs' staff, Murray spent seven seasons as the offensive line and running backs coach for the Canadian Football League's Hamilton Tiger Cats.

Murray, who graduated from American International College in 1982, has been an assistant coach at five different colleges and with two CFL squads, including Toronto (1995). He coached at Bowling Green (1996-99), Navy (1988-94), Wagner (1983-88), Albany (1982) and his alma mater (1982).

His offensive line at Navy helped the Midshipmen set six passing records and his 1998 Bowling Green squad led the nation in rushing and total offense. Murray, who was also an assistant athletic director at Wagner, earned a certificate of advanced graduate studies at the Staten Island campus in 1984.
