He was selected by the Boston Red Sox in the first round (14th overall pick) of the 1986 Major League Baseball Draft, but turned down a six-figure signing bonus to attend the University of Michigan on a football scholarship.[2][3]

McMurtry enrolled at the University of Michigan in 1986 and played college football for head coach Bo Schembechler's Michigan Wolverines football teams from 1986 to 1989.[4] He started five games at flanker in 1986 (22 catches for 508 yards),[5] 12 games at split end in 1987 (21 catches for 474 yards and five touchdowns),[6] 10 games at split end in 1988 (27 catches for 470 yards and three touchdowns),[7] and 12 games at split end in 1989 (41 catches for 711 yards and seven touchdowns).[8] He played on three Big Ten Conference championship teams and appeared in three Rose Bowl Games. He had his best game on November 18, 1989, with seven catches for 189 yards and three touchdowns against Minnesota. In four years at Michigan, he caught 111 passes for 2,163 yards and 15 touchdowns.[9]

Professional football

McMurtry was selected by the Patriots in the third round (80th overall pick) of the 1990 NFL Draft.[1] As a rookie during the 1990 NFL season, McMurtry appeared in 13 games, five as a starter, and caught 22 passes for 240 yards. The following year, he enjoyed his best season in the NFL, catching 41 passes for 614 yards and two touchdowns.[1] In Week 4 of the 1991 NFL season, he caught a game-winning touchdown pass from New England quarterback Hugh Millen in the final minute against the Houston Oilers. In June 1992, the Patriots re-signed McMurtry.[10] During the 1992 NFL season, McMurtry appeared in all 16 games for the Patriots, 15 as a starter, and caught 35 passes for 424 yards and one touchdown. In 1993, McMurtry's final season with the Patriots, he appeared in 14 games, eight as a starter, and caught 22 passes for 241 yards and a touchdown.[1]

McMurtry signed with the Los Angeles Rams in 1994 but was released prior to the start of the regular season.
