The Danbury High School boys’ cross-country team and running coach has earned a national title. 

Rob Murray, coach for 21 years, was recognized last week for his success in consistently taking the Hatters to state and regional championships. Murray was named the “2021 National Boys’ Cross Country Coach of the Year” at the National Coaches Convention of the National High School Athletic Coaches Association on Thursday in Nebraska. He was initially one of eight coaches nominated for the title from across the country. The title was based on criteria that included win/loss record, championship years and tenure as head coach.

He was previously named cross-country Coach of the Year by the Connecticut High School Coaches Association in 2008 and by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross-Country Coaches Association in 2014. In 2017, he was inducted into the Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference Hall of Fame.  He has held the title of FCIAC Coach of the Year 13 times.
