Archbishop Carroll Athletic Director Pleads Guilty

The former athletic director at Archbishop Carroll High School pleaded guilty this week to charges that he arranged a sex tryst with a teenage boy he once recruited to play football at the school.

Francis Murphy of Bryn Mawr, faces up to 14 years in prison after pleading guilty in Montgomery County Court to unlawful contact and corruption of a minor. His attorneys called the crime an "isolated incident" and said they would argue against a jail term.

Murphy had been a Carroll coach since the 1990s, guiding its baseball team to four Catholic League championships and serving as offensive coordinator for several of its football teams.

In 1999, he took over as the school's athletic director.

The student he approached, authorities said, was a football player whom Murphy had recruited more than two years ago, when the youth was in the ninth grade. The student later left Carroll for financial reasons but maintained e-mail contact with Murphy.

According to prosecutors, their online talk turned sexual earlier this year, when the teen was in the 11th grade. Murphy offered to buy sneakers and sports gear for the youth and be his "sugar daddy," they said.

The student and his mother went to authorities. Posing as the teen on Facebook, county detectives continued the conversation with Murphy and arranged a sex rendezvous.

When Murphy arrived at the Frosty Falls Ice Cream shop, a Bridgeport ice cream store where police said he expected to meet the teen for sex they arrested him.

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia placed Murphy on leave after the charges. The school formally cut its ties with Murphy this summer, when it opted not to renew his contract.

"We tried to move on from that months ago," the Rev. Edward Casey, the school president and an assistant baseball coach under Murphy, said Tuesday.

Judge William J. Furber Jr. set no sentencing date. Murphy remains free on $250,000 bail but is barred from any contact with minors, either in person or electronically.
