GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Another quarterback is leaving Florida after the program’s first losing season since 1979.

Tyler Murphy, who started six games and may have gotten a shot at the job in 2014, announced Sunday he’s leaving [2] to play his senior year elsewhere.

Murphy joins freshman Max Staver as quarterbacks who have left the program after Florida coach Will Muschamp fired offensive coordinator Brent Pease and offensive line coach Tim Davis.

The departures leave the Gators with just two scholarship quarterbacks: injured starter Jeff Driskel and freshman Skyler Mornhinweg. Highly touted recruit Will Grier is expected to enroll in January.

Murphy, who graduated Saturday and can play right away at another school, completed 60.5 percent of his passes for 1,216 yards, with six touchdowns and five interceptions. He also was sacked 22 times.
