Florida transfer Tyler Murphy began classes at Boston College on Tuesday with an eye toward winning the starting quarterback job come spring practice.

A source confirmed that both Murphy and former Florida offensive lineman Ian Silberman, also a fifth-year senior, are now enrolled at Boston College. Murphy and Silberman have ties to Boston College coach Steve Addazio, a former Florida assistant. Addazio recruited Murphy to play for the Gators.

Murphy announced his intentions to transfer from Florida after the regular season ended. He graduated in December and has one year of eligibility remaining for the Eagles, who need to find a replacement for three-year starting quarterback Chase Rettig.

Murphy started six games last season for the Gators after starter Jeff Driskel was lost for the season. He went 2-4 with 1,216 yards, six touchdowns and five interceptions before missing the final three games of the season with a shoulder injury.
