English club rugby’s most decorated player, Geordan Murphy spent 16 years as a player with Leicester Tigers before joining the coaching team and was put in charge of team affairs as interim head coach in September 2018 after the departure of Matt O’Connor.

On December 18, Murphy was appointed Tigers head coach by the club's board.

Murphy ended his 16th season with Tigers in 2012/13 by celebrating the eighth Premiership title of his career before becoming assistant backs coach, initially working in the coaching team led by Richard Cockerill.

After arriving in Leicester as a teenager with just one senior season at Naas RFC behind him and selection for a World Junior Championship with Ireland Under-19s, Geordan went on to make 322 appearances for Tigers, scoring 93 tries and 691 points. He also played 72 Tests for Ireland and made seven appearances (including Tests against Argentina and New Zealand) with the Lions.

Murphy made his club debut against Rotherham in November 1997 and played his final game in May 2013, leading the team in a league win over London Irish. Playing in four Heineken Cup Finals, with winners’ medals in 2001 and 2002, Geordan also graced a record seven Premiership Finals. He is Leicester’s leading appearance-maker and try-scorer in European rugby and is 17th on the club’s all-time scorers’ chart.

He started his coaching career by leading Tigers to the Final of the Premiership Sevens for the first time in August 2013 and took a lead role in the run to the Anglo-Welsh Cup victory in 2016/17 as Tigers became the first three-time winners of the tournament.
