TOM MURPHY, now in his 25th season with the New York Jets, begins his 12th as vice president, information technology.
Murphy is responsible for the design, development and implementation of all organizational information systems, software applications, IT support and infrastructure systems. In addition to his responsibilities with the Jets, Murphy oversees all technology at The Johnson Company.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Murphy and his staff planned and implemented the virtual connection of the entire organization, educating staff on remote access and solving for their varying ability to connect from home. The IT staff also helped General Manager Joe Douglas in the lead up to the Draft as football personnel were able to conduct pre-draft visits virtually. Douglas was also connected to his staff via a virtual draft room during the 2020 NFL Draft that allowed for seamless communication and the completion of multiple trades, as nine total selections were made. Following the Draft, the coaching staff was able to connect with the player and conduct their entire offseason program virtually.
In 2010, Murphy worked closely with the National Football League to make Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium a technological success. He was the Jets lead on the WiFi system upgrade to allow media, participating teams and fans to enjoy an unprecedented digital experience.
During his tenure, Murphy oversaw the team's relocation to the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center in 2008, as well as serving as the technology project manager as The Johnson Company moved into a new state-of-the-art facility in 2011.
Born and raised in Island Park, NY, Murphy and his wife, Beth, have a daughter, Marie Elizabeth, and a son, Thomas Harrison.
