DeMarco Murray is a former American football running back who played in the National Football League (NFL) for 7 seasons. A three-time Pro Bowl selection and one-time first team All-Pro, he was the NFL Offensive Player of the Year in 2014 when he led the NFL in both rushing yards and rushing touchdowns.

Murray played college football at Oklahoma and was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft. After four seasons with the Cowboys, he played for the Philadelphia Eagles for one year and then the Tennessee Titans for two years. He currently serves as running backs coach at the University of Arizona.

Considered one of the top running backs of his class, Murray drew offers from Miami (FL), Penn State, and Texas A&M, among several others. He chose Oklahoma over Southern California at the 2006 U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

Murray attended and played college football for the Oklahoma Sooners from 2006–2010.

Murray missed Week 3 due to a hamstring injury, while Mathews ran for 108 yards and Darren Sproles scored 2 touchdowns. Despite Mathews' success, Murray was named the starter in a divisional matchup with the Washington Redskins. He had a 30-yard run in the first quarter, but finished the game with 8 carries for 36 yards. On October 19, in a 27-7 win over the New York Giants, Murray rushed for 109 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries, which turned out to be his only 100-yard game of the season.

On July 13, 2018, Murray announced his retirement from the NFL.

In August 2018, one month after his retirement, Murray was added as a college football commentator for Fox Sports.

On January 2, 2019, Murray joined Kevin Sumlin's staff at the Arizona Wildcats football team as the running backs coach.
