Murray was a prodigiously talented amateur and soon racked up a 12-0 professional record before his career hit the buffers.
The 26-year-old has not fought in over a year and left Hatton Promotions after just one fight under their banner.
However, he is now looking to regain momentum with Warren, who has added him to the big April 20 show at Wembley starring Nathan Cleverly.
"Frank's the best in the business, he got my brother John a world title opportunity and I'm sure he can guide me to a world title as well," he said.
Murray also split with trainer Joe Gallagher and is now working with Anthony Farnell.
The move to Warren scuppers any chance rival promoter Eddie Hearn had of matching Murray with new signing Lee Selby.
