[edit] Biographical Information

Pat Murphy has been a major league manager, minor league pitcher, college coach and minor league manager. He is the father-in-law of Pedro Alvarez.

In 1983, Murphy was 1-5 5.50 ERA in 6 starts and 22 relief appearances for the Salem Redbirds in the San Diego Padres chain. He struck out 63 in 88 IP, but walked 44.

In 1985, Murphy was 5-5 5.32 ERA for the independent Tri-Cities Triplets of the Northwest League, leading the team in IP. He was tied for second on the team in wins. In 1986 the Triplets were a co-op team and Murphy was named player/manager. Murphy only relieved in 7 games, getting one win and one save, posting a 2.25 ERA in 12 IP.

Murphy was the head baseball coach at Maryville College in 1983, and assistant football coach. He was an assistant at his alma-mater in 1984-1985, then was the head coach at Claremont-Mudd Scripps in 1986-1987. Murphy then moved to the University of Notre Dame from 1988 to 1994. In 1995, Murphy moved to Arizona State University replacing Jim Brock. He managed the Dutch national team to a Gold in the 1987 European Championship and guided them again in the 2000 Olympics, leading the Netherlands to their first win ever over Cuba. Murphy resigned in November 2009 with a record of 629-284-1 in 15 seasons at ASU.

In 2011, Murphy moved to the pro ranks as manager of the Eugene Emeralds in the Padres organization and continued in that position in 2012. He moved to the AAA Tucson Padres in 2013 and followed the team as it became the El Paso Chihuahuas in 2014. On June 16, 2015, he was appointed manager of the major league Padres, one day after long-time manager Bud Black was fired and following a one-game interim by Dave Roberts. He had earlier sought permission from the Padres to interview for the position of manager of the Milwaukee Brewers after the firing of Ron Roenicke, but GM A.J. Preller had refused the request, as the Padres also had big plans for him.
