Back-up Florida Gators quarterback Tyler Murphy is to transfer despite starting seven games in the place of injured starter Jeff Driskel last season.

Murphy is to join old offensive co-ordinator Steve Addazio at Boston College, where he reported to be enrolling as soon as this week.

Murphy had a mixed season for an awful Gators team, passing for 1,1216 yards, 6 TDs and 5 INTS, and rushing for 61 yards and 3 TDs.

The good news for the Gators is that Driskel is going to return after getting injured in the second game of the season, but is expected back by Spring Practice.

BOTTOM LINE: If Driskel stays fit, it won’t matter that Murphy’s gone to BC. However if he doesn’t – and Matt Jones can’t start the year – then it could be another long old season for Will Muschamp.
