GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Junior quarterback Tyler Murphy, who started six games for the Gators this season, intends to transfer, the school confirmed on Sunday.
Murphy becomes the latest Gators player to choose to leave the program. Last Thursday, the school confirmed six players' decisions to transfer.
Under NCAA transfer rules, Murphy, who graduated on Saturday, will be eligible to play next season without sitting out a year.
Murphy threw for 1,216 yards with six touchdowns and five interceptions in leading Florida to a 2-4 record in games he started. A reserve for each of his three seasons at Florida, Murphy came on in relief of junior starter Jeff Driskel, who broke his leg in Week 3 against Tennessee.
With freshman Max Staver also transferring, Florida will now have just two scholarship QBs on its roster. It does expect to sign top recruit Will Grier, ESPN's No. 2 QB prospect in the nation, in January.
