REGINA — The condition of Cal Murphy, a Canadian Football Hall of Famer, was improving at a Regina hospital Tuesday.
A spokesperson close to the family said Tuesday that Murphy, who lives in Regina, had been removed from life support. The spokesperson added that Murphy was conscious and talking but remains in intensive care.
Murphy, 78, has a history of heart trouble. In 1992, he underwent emergency bypass surgery followed by a heart transplant.
Murphy was on the Saskatchewan Roughriders' coaching staff from 1997 to 1999. He was the head coach in 1999.
Murphy is most renowned for his 14-year affiliation with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. He joined the team in 1983 and stayed until 1996. Murphy guided the Blue Bombers to three Grey Cup wins and five appearances.
A two-time winner of the CFL's coach-of-the-year, Murphy has nine Grey Cup rings, earned during a career that took him through half the clubs in the league.
In addition to coaching the Blue Bombers, he also served with the Montreal Alouettes, Edmonton Eskimos and British Columbia Lions before wrapping up his CFL career in 1999 with the Roughriders.
Murphy, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2004, has been a scout with the Indianapolis Colts since 2000.
Murphy and his wife, Joyce, have been residents of Regina since 1997.
