Tom Davis always looked for the "Wow!" factor when he recruited basketball players for the University of Iowa, guys with great character, ability and personality who gave the coach a certain "tingle" when he watched them.
Kenyon Murray was one of those guys and he enjoyed a terrific career for Dr. Tom and the Hawkeyes in the 1990's, one of only two players in school history who finished their playing days with 1,000 points, 500 rebounds and 200 steals.
Now Murray will be bringing that "Wow!" factor to the Metro Sports Report in his new role as General Manager of the Cedar Rapids website company.
"I always enjoyed working with Kenyon when I covered the Hawkeyes for The Gazette," said Jim Ecker, president of the Metro Sports Report. "He was always friendly, helpful and insightful about the games, whether Iowa won or lost.
"I developed a tremendous amount of respect for Kenyon during his career and we have become friends over the years. Now it is my pleasure to welcome him to our team here at the Metro Sports Report."
