Draft Scout Tyler Murphy News
12/15/13 - 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 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. - AP Sports
11/11/13 - Florida's injury-riddled season has reached a new low -- and it likely will end without a bowl trip. Tyler Murphy's four turnovers led to three touchdowns, helping Vanderbilt embarrass Florida 34-17 for the program's first win in Gainesville since 1945. The Commodores snapped a 22-game losing streak in the lopsided series and moved a step closer to becoming bowl eligible for the third consecutive season under coach James Franklin.
Franklin also notched another signature win, giving Vanderbilt victories over Southeastern Conference powerhouses Georgia and Florida in the same season for the first time in school history. Once ranked, Florida has its second four-game losing streak in coach Will Muschamp's three seasons, fueling more speculation about his future in Gainesville. - AP Sports
11/09/13 - Tyler Murphy's four turnovers led to three touchdowns, helping Vanderbilt embarrass Florida 34-17 Saturday for the program's first win in Gainesville since 1945. The Commodores snapped a 22-game losing streak in the lopsided series and moved a step closer to becoming bowl eligible for the third consecutive season under coach James Franklin. It was another signature win for Vanderbilt, which knocked off Southeastern Conference powerhouses Georgia and Florida in the same season for the first time in school history.
Murphy was Vandy's MVP in this one, a loss that probably will leave the Gators (4-5, 3-4 SEC) out of a bowl game for the first time since 1990. The Commodores (5-4, 2-4) scored after each of Murphy's three interceptions, taking advantage of short fields to build a 24-3 lead. Vanderbilt finished with 12 first downs and 187 yards. Florida had 26 first downs and 353 yards. Murphy completed 28 of 45 passes for a career-high 297 yards. But his three interceptions - he also lost a fumble - were key. - AP Sports
10/01/13 - The Gators take a 26-game series winning streak into their latest matchup with the Wildcats. It's the longest current winning streak in a series that's played every season. Penn State has beaten Temple 30 straight, but over a span of 61 years. Two Florida injuries give Kentucky reason for hope at home. Quarterback Jeff Driskel went down with a broken leg last week against Tennessee. Tyler Murphy relieved and played well for No. 20 Florida. He gets his first start Saturday. The Gators also lost dominant defensive tackle Dominique Easley to a knee injury in practice this week. - AP Sports
09/21/13 - After starting quarterback Jeff Driskel was lost to a season-ending ankle injury, Tyler Murphy led No. 19 Florida to five scores in a somewhat ugly game, helping the Gators open Southeastern Conference play with a 31-17 victory over Tennessee on Saturday.
Murphy had a 52-yard touchdown throw to Solomon Patton, a swing pass that went the distance, and made several plays with his legs as Florida (2-1, 1-0 SEC) won its ninth consecutive game in the series. Murphy's 7-yard TD scamper in the fourth quarter made it 31-10 and sent fans scrambling for the exits. The Volunteers (2-2, 0-1) had hoped to rebound from an embarrassing, 59-14 loss at No. 2 Oregon a week ago. Instead, Tennessee and first-year coach Butch Jones left Gainesville with another double-digit setback. - AP Sports
