Multiple reports Thursday saying URI associate men's basketball coach Preston Murphy will leave the Rams to work for Boston College. The Eagles are now under the guidance of the recently hired Jim Christian, a former URI player himself.

Murphy was recently appointed to his new position at Rhode Island, but will reportedly head back to BC, where he was director of basketball operations under Al Skinner from 2007-2010.
