He graduated from Beth Haven Academy in Louisville, Ky., where he was a three sport athlete, in 1992.

There, Murr played shooting guard on the basketball team, quarterback on the football team and pitched for the baseball team.

He went on to Tennessee Temple University where he earned his bachelors degree and played basketball. He also earned a masters degree in education administration from Liberty University.
