PROFILE

Craig Murray developed the Total Package Basketball concept and philosophy from personal experience as an All-State point guard at Garfield High School, that won the 1985-86 WIAA State Championship, while leading the University of Hawaii Warriors (NCAA Div. I) and the Idaho State University Bengals (NCAA Div. I), as Olympic College Men’s Assistant and Head Coach, and while working as a basketball trainer. 

After playing point guard at The University of Hawaii 1986-88 Craig moved on to finish his career at Idaho State University 1989-91. After graduating he became the head assistant coach at Olympic College from 1992-2000. His main responsibilities were recruiting, scouting and player development.  During those times is when Craig had the opportunity to hone his skills as a trainer.  Craig then transitioned into running his own youth fundamental skill developmental program called Total Package Basketball; in which he and his wife and partner Megan Murray have trained hundreds of boys and girls for the last twenty two years.  

 

Craig has helped players transition to the next level whether that be elementary, middle school, high school, and plenty to college at the Jr. College, four year Division 1,2, or 3 levels. Craig has trained Professionals whether NBA or overseas.  Steven Gray (Gonzaga University), Clarence Trent (University of Washington), Evan Atwater (George Fox), Mathias Ward (Montana University), and Sam Gagliardi {Florida Gulf Coast) are just a few former Total Package students  who have had the opportunity to be part of our Total Package family.

 

During this twenty four year journey Craig has many connections at the Collegiate level and has developed great relationships coaches such as the likes of Mark Few (Head Coach Gonzaga), Leon Rice (Head Boise State), Tommy lloyd  (Head Coach Arizona} and Travis Decuire (Head Coach Montana) just to name a few. Craig is truly respected and trusted with his player evaluations and ability to develop a player’s basketball skills and build character that translates to the next level.

 

Total Package’s motto of "You’re Only as Good as Your Last Performance" replicates itself in the everyday fundamental skill developmental approach in each and every session. Craig's love and commitment to helping a player establish and achieve their goals has been evident through the years. His teaching and mentorship is second to none.
