Tusla Oilers extend head coach Rob Murray

TULSA, Okla. – The Tulsa Oilers announced on Tuesday that head coach Rob Murray has signed a contract extension to keep his job until the 2024-25 season.

Murray is in his fifth year with the Oilers, who are 143-114-41 during his tenure.

The team won their first division title in over 30 years in 2018-19.

“I am delighted to have this opportunity,” said Murray.

“Our new ownership under Andy Scurto has been great. Through his leadership, the Oilers organization will continue to grow and improve more and more. I am very fortunate to have the chance to be here and see this growth. There’s just a different buzz around the Oilers in Tulsa now, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

As director of hockey operations, Murray won the 2018-19 ECHL General Manager of the Year (Director of Player Personnel) award – an award determined by a vote of the ECHL coaches.

“I am very happy to extend Coach Murray’s contract and ensure that the Tulsa Oilers continue to have a high quality coach at the helm,” said owner Andy Scurto. “Coach Murray brings the perfect balance of competitiveness, team leadership and fan support, while also fully understanding what I want to accomplish with the Tulsa Oilers. I look forward to working with Coach Murray and see what we can accomplish with the Tulsa Oilers in the next few years. “
