Rob Murray took over as the Noble and Greenough School baseball coach in 2013 and has since helped turn the program into one of the model outfits in the Independent School League.
Murray recently joined the New England Baseball Journal Podcast to talk about his process for culture-building and share how he led a team of prep schoolers through a pandemic.
Murray’s Nobles squad managed to play 24 games this spring, finishing 16-8. Nobles has three Division 1 commits returning next season — Michigan commit Marc Willi, Villanova commit Jake Bollin and Pitt commit Matt Travisano.
“Marc’s progression in the last two to three years has been amazing,” Murray said. “Instead of just mashing, he hits to all fields. His defense has gotten a lot better. Jake is a big, strong kid with a tremendous arm. His receiving is so much better than it was as a freshman. Matt’s a stud. He’s a tremendous athlete and a tremendous competitor.”
