Quarterback Jacoby Brissett and running back Chris Johnson have decided to leave the Florida football program to transfer to another school, Florida confirmed Sunday.
"Both Jacoby and Chris expressed an interest in transferring and getting a fresh start," said head coach Will Muschamp in a statement. "We are very thankful for their contributions to the University of Florida and wish them the best of luck."
Johnson played in all 26 games the past two seasons, mainly on special teams. He had 35 yards on five carries in 2012.
Brissett lost the preseason competition to be Florida's starting quarterback to Jeff Driskel. Brissett played sparingly and started one game when Driskel was injured.
According to the Palm Beach Post, Brissett's top choices for a transfer destination are West Virginia, Louisville, Arkansas and North Carolina State.
