Boston College redshirt senior QB Tyler Murphy said that he's been "very happy" with his decision to transfer from Florida to Boston College.
Murphy transferred from Florida in 2013. Several weeks ago, he broke Doug Flutie's team record for rushing yards in a season when he rumbled over 968 yards for the season. Then, against Louisiana-Monroe on November 8, he became the first ACC quarterback to rush for more than 1,000 yards since 2009. Murphy said, "I'm having a blast, and it's just fun to just go out with these guys that just care, that really just want to not let the team down." After the season has ended, Murphy is considering getting into coaching. "I think his age, his maturity, his intelligence really helps him in his preparation," head coach Steve Addazio said.

Boston College redshirt senior QB Tyler Murphy completed 10-of-28 passes for 134 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Friday's 30-20 loss to Pittsburgh.

Murphy was utterly ineffective through the air, but he did run for 104 yards and a touchdown across 15 carries (including a 51-yard scamper). Boston College led 7-3 in the first quarter, but Pittsburgh proceeded to take over the game and score the next 24 points. Boston College's offense had all kinds of trouble moving the ball when Murphy wasn't throwing interceptions. The Eagles are a one-man offensive unit at the moment, and that one man is a player that was in over his head when Florida was forced to use him last season. It could be a long season in Beantown.

Florida redshirt junior QB Tyler Murphy has transferred to Boston College.

He began classes on Tuesday. Boston College coach Steve Addazio recruited Murphy when he was at Florida. The fifth-year senior graduated in December and has one year of eligibility remaining. He's eligible to play immediately and is a top candidate to replace outgoing three-year starting QB Chase Rettig. Murphy will have to fend off freshman early enrollee Darius Wade, Josh Bordner and James Walsh to win that job.

Florida redshirt junior QB Tyler Murphy intends to transfer.

The school announced Murphy's decision on Sunday, three days after it told the media that six other players were leaving the school. Because Murphy graduated on Saturday, he will not have to sit out a season. Murphy threw for 1,216 yards, six touchdowns and five interceptions while guiding Florida to a 2-4 record in six games started. The Gators now have just two scholarship QBs on its roster, senior-to-be Jeff Driskel and sophomore-to-be Skyler Mornhinweg.

Florida redshirt junior QB Tyler Murphy (shoulder) will be a game-time decision against No. 10 South Carolina on Saturday.

Murphy sprained his shoulder against LSU on Oct. 12 and has been gutting through the pain ever since. The signal caller didn't practice on Monday or Tuesday. "It's very difficult just because after these last few losses and not playing well on Saturday, I need all the practice I can get," he said. "It's just frustrating being banged up a little bit and having to sit out and try to get healthy. I'm just gonna live in the training room and get healthy and try to get back out there as soon as possible." Redshirt freshman Skyler Mornhinweg, the son of New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and a four-star recruit in 2012, is Florida's backup quarterback.

Florida coach Will Muschamp called his offense "inept."

"We're inept offensively right now," Muschamp said on his Sunday television show, "and we need to make some changes as we move forward." The Gators rank 106th overall in total offense with 336.9 yards per game and 103rd in scoring offense at 21.1 points per game. Muschamp is eying his maligned offensive line for changes during the upcoming bye week. "We have not been productive up front," Muschamp said. "We have to do a better job in the run game, and, obviously, do a better job in protection."

Florida redshirt junior QB Tyler Murphy completed 15 of 29 attempts for 92 yards and an interception in the school's 36-17 loss to Missouri.

Terrible. The entire Gators' offense was inept in every way, and struggled to protect Murphy in the pocket. The redshirt junior has said he wants to play like A.J. McCarron in a game manager role, but he will have to improve in order to reach that goal.

Florida redshirt junior QB Tyler Murphy said he tries to model his game after Alabama senior QB A.J. McCarron.

Murphy says he doesn't mind the "game manager" label, and then drew the comparison to McCarron. We still think this fits, as McCarron is very efficient in Alabama's offense and understands his own limitations. Murphy is a better running threat, but he has only thrown one interceptions since taking over for turnover prone Jeff Driskel.

Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease expects Kentucky to implement pressure packages in response to new starting redshirt junior QB Tyler Murphy.

Pressure packages aren't only used to counteract designed passes but against designed runs, with the goal being to create havoc and disrupt the backfield. Pease also suggested the Wildcats could use a spy to lock on to the mobile Murphy.

Florida redshirt junior QB Tyler Murphy completed eight of 14 attempts for 134 yards and a touchdown in a 31-17 win over Tennessee.

Murphy added 84 rushing yards and a score on the ground. With the season ending injury to Jeff Driskel, Murphy is the school's new starter. We expect the Gators to focus more on the ground game in the coming weeks. The Gators face Kentucky next week.

Florida head coach Will Muschamp redshirt junior QB Tyler Murphy will be the top passer with Jeff Driskel out following surgery.

Driskel underwent emergency appendectomy surgery a few days ago and is expected to miss two weeks. We doubt he misses game action, but the Gators seem to have a clear back up in Murphy. He has played in three games during his career with no starts.
