The Watertown Public very pleased to announce that Mr. Ryan Murphy will be the next Athletic Director for the Watertown Public Schools.  Mr. Murphy has served in the role of Athletic Director for the past six years, five at St. Clements in Medford and currently is the Athletic Director at Pope John in Everett, running a 7-12 athletic program.  

Mr. Murphy showed throughout the process his dedication to his students and his desire to be part of a community that values athletics and its role in the larger mission of the school district.  Mr. Murphy also demonstrated a deep understanding of the need to build programs and to promote diversity and equity across our teams.  We have great confidence that he will grow and succeed in the Watertown Public Schools and that our students and staff will benefit from his being part of the WPS team.  

A heartfelt thank you goes out to the AD Screening Committee for their work - they brought forward exceptional candidates for consideration.
