Report: Assistant Basketball Coach Preston Murphy To Leave BC For Creighton

Basketball program continues to get bad news

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Boston College basketball got even more bad news today as reports leaked out that Assistant Head Coach Preston Murphy will be leaving the Eagles to join Creighton.

Murphy originally came to the Heights in 2006 where he served as the Director of Basketball Operations under Al Skinner. He then left the program to become an assistant head coach at the University of Rhode Island, where he served for four years and became known around the country as an excellent recruiter. He returned to Boston College last year as an assistant head coach under new head coach Jim Christian.

Nothing seems to be going right for BC basketball in the past two months, as Lonnie Jackson, Will Magarity, and Olivier Hanlan all left the program. Now add on the loss of arguably BC's best recruiter, and you have one disastrous offseason. At this point, keep your fingers and toes crossed that Assistant Coach Scott Spinelli enjoys being at the Heights.
