BOSTON (AP) – Tim Murphy was reappointed as Harvard’s football coach through 2011 on Monday after the sixth consecutive season in which he led the Crimson to at least seven wins.

Harvard won three Ivy League titles in that stretch and went unbeaten and untied twice. The Crimson finished at 7-3 this season, 4-3 in the conference, and missed a chance to tie for the Ivy championship when it lost 34-13 at home in the season finale against Yale.

Yale (8-2, 6-1) ended a five-game losing streak against Harvard and shared the title with Princeton.

Murphy, Harvard’s fourth head coach in 57 years, succeeded Joe Restic after the 1993 season. In his 13 seasons, Murphy is 80-49 and ranks second to Restic in victories.

Details of his contract were not released.
