GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP)
Florida coach Will Muschamp seems to be cleaning house after the program's first losing season since 1979.
Muschamp announced Thursday that six offensive players have decided to transfer. The list includes freshman quarterback Max Staver and three offensive linemen.
Staver, tight end Kent Taylor, fullback Rhaheim Ledbetter and offensive linemen Quinteze Williams, Trevon Young and Ian Silberman are changing schools. Silberman, a junior from nearby Jacksonville, plans to play his final season at another school after graduating Saturday.
Their decisions came a little more than a week after Muschamp fired offensive coordinator Brent Pease and offensive line coach Tim Davis.
Muschamp says "these young men felt it was in their best interest to look for an opportunity to play somewhere else. We wish all of them the best of luck."
