MEMPHIS, Tennessee – Memphis 901 FC announced the signing of forward Kyle Murphy, pending league and federation approval, on Friday.
“Kyle is a hard-working, dangerous attacker with loads of experience in this league. We’re adding a true professional with captain experience and an impressive goal-scoring record to our frontline,” Sporting Director Tim Howard said.
Murphy has five seasons of USL Championship play under his belt with a 13-goal season for Loudoun United FC in 2019. He spent last season with the Tampa Bay Rowdies who made it to the USL Championship Final which was canceled due to COVID-19.
Prior to Loudoun, he spent one season with San Antonio FC and two seasons with Rio Grande Valley FC.
In his 116 USL Championship appearances, Murphy has scored 25 goals and produced eight assists. Murphy received honors for USL Championship Goal of the Month in August of last year and Player of the Month for October 2019 when he tallied four goals and one assist in the last five matches of the season.
Murphy joins fellow newcomers Kadeem Dacres and John Berner along with returners Zach Carroll, Dan Metzger and Mark Segbers as Memphis continues to build its roster for the 2021 season.
Additional news and information about the 2021 roster, schedule, tickets and more will be available in the coming weeks and months.
