GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett is leaving No. 4 Florida.
Coach Will Muschamp says safety/running back Chris Johnson also has been granted his scholarship release and plans to transfer.
Muschamp says both sophomores ``expressed an interest in transferring and getting a fresh start.''
Brissett started three games in two seasons and lost an open competition with Jeff Driskel before this season. Brissett completed 41 of 74 passes for 455 yards with three touchdowns and four interceptions.
He is reportedly considering West Virginia, Louisville, Arkansas, North Carolina State and Duke.
Johnson played safety and running back, but saw most of his action on special teams. He had 19 special teams tackles. He ran five times for 35 yards this season.
