The Premiership’s most decorated man, Geordan Murphy ended his 16th and final season as a Leicester Tigers player in 2012/13 by celebrating the eighth Premiership title of his career and announced that he would be moving into coaching at the club.

Murphy became assistant backs coach for 2013/14, working in the backroom team led by Richard Cockerill and subsequently under Aaron Mauger and Matt O’Connor.

Arriving in Leicester as a teenager with just one senior season at Naas RFC in Ireland behind him, Geordan made his Tigers debut against Rotherham in November 1997 and the last of his 322 appearances came in May 2013 against London Irish.

Geordan scored 93 tries in a club total of 691 points as well as playing in 72 Tests for Ireland and making seven appearances (including Tests against Argentina and New Zealand) with the British & Lions.

Playing in four Heineken Cup Finals for Tigers, he collected winners’ medals in 2001 and 2002. Geordan also starred in a record seven Premiership Finals for the club.

He is Leicester’s leading tryscorer and appearance-holder in the European Cup, and is 17th on the club’s all-time tryscorers’ chart.

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

He took over as interim head coach when O’Connor departed after the opening game of the 2018/19 season and the appointment was confirmed in December 2018.
