DeMarco Murray retired after last season following a productive seven-year NFL career. He was then hired by FOX as a college football analyst for the 2018 season.

Now, Murray could be taking on a new venture in football. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the 30-year-old former Oklahoma and Dallas Cowboys star is considering joining Kevin Sumlin's staff at Arizona.

Murray would coach running backs, per Schefter.

There is an obvious connection between Murray and Sumlin. Sumlin was the co-offensive coordinator at Oklahoma from 2003-07, and his final season with the Sooners was Murray's freshman year.

Murray was a two-time first team All-Big 12 selection before becoming a third-round pick of the Cowboys in 2011. He made the Pro Bowl twice in four seasons in Dallas.

In 2016, Murray made his final Pro Bowl appearance as a member of the Tennessee Titans. He finished his career with 7, 174 yards and 49 rushing touchdowns.

Murray has excelled as a player and gotten started in broadcasting. Now we'll see if he wants to give coaching a try.
