MILWAUKEE – Mark Murphy, president and CEO of the Green Bay Packers, will be the featured guest in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Tuesday, Sept. 30, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.

Murphy joined the Packers in January 2008, becoming the chief executive officer for one of the premier franchises in professional sports.

He spent eight years in the NFL as a player, winning a Super Bowl and earning All-Pro honors. As his career was winding down, Murphy took classes at night and during the offseason to earn an MBA in finance from American University. After retiring as a player, he became an assistant executive director of the NFL Players Association. He earned his law degree from Georgetown University and worked as a trial attorney with the U.S. Department of Justice.

Murphy then went into college athletics, serving a combined 16 years as director of athletics at Colgate University and Northwestern University before joining the Packers. In his visit to the Law School, Murphy will discuss his career path, his responsibilities with the Packers and the state of the NFL.

Public seating for the event is at capacity, but registration for a waiting list is available online. For those who can’t attend in person, a “watch now” button on the registration page will provide access to a live video stream. Media interested in attending should contact Chris Jenkins in the Office of Marketing and Communication at (414) 288-4745 or

Gousha, an award-winning television journalist, is the Law School’s distinguished fellow in law and public policy. His “On the Issues” series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School’s commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.

Through the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, public lectures by leading scholars and topical conferences — all open to the community — the Law School serves as a venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
