Murdoch is the football coach and the literature teacher at Dalton Academy. He is a large man with a booming voice. He is known for his prejudice against Windsor House; going so far as to dock marks and accuse David of copying a senior student's paper. He seems to have quite a temper. He is also the reason that Blaine quit the football team. His bullying is nicely called 'setting a standard of excellence'. The Fandom has nicknamed him Snape.
