Harvard football coach Tim Murphy is at home, recovering from a medical issue he went through this month.

The 57-year-old Kingston native, who directed the Crimson to a 9-1 record and their seventh Ivy League title last fall, is expected to return to coaching this spring. He has been Harvard’s coach for 20 years.


In Murphy’s absence, his coordinators, Joel Lamb (offense) and Scott Larkee (defense), will manage the program.

The winningest coach in program history at 137-62, Murphy is 15-5 against rival Yale in The Game, with seven straight wins, including a 34-7 victory in New Haven last November.
