Florida will endure some player turnover on offense, with seven offensive players planning to transfer. The Gators still have not hired an offensive coordinator or offensive line coach.
The player transfers are highlighted by backup QB Tyler Murphy, who filled in for starter Jeff Driskel after he went down with a season-ending injury. Murphy, of course, was injured himself and didn’t finish he season. Murphy threw for 1,216 yards, six TDs and five INTs.
Florida also announced sophomore TE Kent Taylor (former 5-star), freshman QB Max Staver, freshman FB Rhaheim Ledbetter, freshman OL Quinteze Williams, freshman OL Trevon Young and junior offensive lineman Ian Silberman will all transfer.
With Murphy and Staver out, it only leaves Skyler Mornhinweg, Jeff Driskel and incoming freshman Will Grier as scholarship QBs.
Change is good for Florida’s offense, but Murphy is the QB they needed to keep, not Mornhinweg.
