(Gainesville, FL) - University of Florida head coach Will Muschamp announced on Sunday that sophomores Jacoby Brissett (West Palm Beach) and Chris Johnson (Ocala) intend to transfer from the program.
“Both Jacoby and Chris expressed an interest in transferring and getting a fresh start,” said Muschamp. “We are very thankful for their contributions to the University of Florida and wish them the best of luck.”
Brissett played in 13 career games at Florida as a quarterback, including two starts in 2011, at LSU and at Auburn, and one start in 2012 against Jacksonville State. He completed 41-of-74 career pass attempts for 455 yards with three touchdowns and four interceptions.
Johnson, who played safety and running back while at Florida, saw action in all 26 games in his two years on campus, mostly as a special teams’ ace. He totaled 19 career tackles on kickoff and punt coverage and recovered a fumble against South Carolina in 2012 which he returned to the one-yard line. He totaled five carries for 35 yards as a running back in 2012.
