At The Helm
In his 26th season, Harvard's all-time winningest head coach, Tim Murphy, enters this week's game with a 178-77 record with the Crimson and a 209-122-1 overall head coaching record, which includes five years at Cincinnati and two years at Maine. Since the formation of the Ivy League in 1956, only one Ivy coach (Yale's Carm Cozza) has compiled more wins than Murphy's 178 and he is just one of 11 coaches to win 100-plus games. Murphy also owns 124 Ivy League wins, tied for second-most all-time. Murphy has led Harvard to nine Ivy League championships (1997, 2001, 2004, 2007, 2008, 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2015).
Harvard will head back on the road and visit Columbia Saturday, Nov. 9 at 1 p.m.
