Born in Córdoba, Andalusia, Murcia never played in higher than Segunda División B, and retired in 1992 at the age of only 27 due to injury. He coached several local youth teams in his early years, including Córdoba CF. After a successful spell with the reserves (two consecutive promotions all the way to Tercera División), he was one of four managers for the main squad in the 2001–02 season, achieving four wins, two draws and two losses during his eight games in charge as the side eventually retained their Segunda División status.
Murcia then plied his trade in the third level, leading Atlético Madrid's B-team to the league championship in his first year, albeit with no playoff promotion. On 9 January 2006, following a 0–0 La Liga home draw against Valencia CF, he was appointed the Colchoneros' first team's manager, replacing sacked Carlos Bianchi; the club ranked 12th at that time, going on to finish the campaign in tenth position.
Murcia spent the following four years in the second level with as many teams, not managing to finish one single season but with none of the clubs eventually losing their league status. On 30 November 2009, following a 2–3 home loss against CD Numancia, he was fired at Albacete Balompié due to negative results, with the Castile-La Mancha side in 16th position at that time –eventually ranking 15th.
On 9 August 2011 Murcia signed a two-year contract with Romanian club FC Braşov, but resigned at the Liga I side after three matches, due to family reasons. In June 2014, after nearly three years out of football, he was appointed at PFC Levski Sofia in Bulgaria.
Murcia was fired on 4 August 2014, due to poor results.
