The Pirates win the award for a third straight time, but share it this year with Xavier and Georgetown.
The team used it's Christmas gift exchange money to buy supplies for animals in need.
The Pirates will add three talented newcomers to the roster for play beginning in the fall of 2016.
Debby Murphy is entering her fifth season as an assistant coach for the Seton Hall women's golf team.
Murphy rejoined the Pirates prior to the start of the 2014-15 academic year and was instrumental in helping guide the team to their second straight BIG EAST Championship. Murphy's Pirates followed up that performance with their third third straight title in 2016. The Pirates were ranked fourth in the BIG EAST entering the title event, but were able to win the championship by 12 strokes. For their coaching performance, Murphy and head coach Sara Doell were named BIG EAST Coach Staff of the Year.
Murphy served as Doell's assistant for two seasons in South Orange before leaving to serve as Pingry High School's head golf coach for the 2013-14 academic year.
"We're really happy and excited to have "Coach D" back with us," Doell said. "She is a tremendous resource and an excellent swing coach. Our team really respects her knowledge and genuinely missed her presence over the last year. Her return will only make us stronger."
Murphy has been a teaching professional for nearly 30 years, and currently holds that position at Trump National Golf Club.
In 1998, she founded the Webster Golf Camp while serving as the teaching professional at Webster Golf Club, before developing The Academy at Webster Golf Club in 2002. In 2001, Murphy was named the LPGA Teaching and Club Professional of the Year, while earning the Phyllis Meekins Junior Development Award in the same year. She was also named a Top-50 Teacher by Golf Digest's Golf For Women Magazine in 2001.
As a player, Murphy has competed in tournaments on the Future's Tour, Australian LPGA, PGA of America and LPGA.
