Former Gator Ian Silberman reportedly lands at Louisville

One of the handful of Florida Gators who have left the program in recent days has reportedly settled on his new football home.

Robbie Andreu of the Gainesville Sun is reporting that offensive lineman Ian Silberman will be transferring to Louisville.  Cardinals head coach Charlie Strong served as the Gators’ defensive coordinator for Silberman’s first couple of seasons in Gainesville.

Because Silberman will have graduated from UF, the lineman will be eligible to play immediately in 2014.  Louisville has yet to confirm Silberman’s addition to the roster.

The past two years, Silberman started seven games at guard for the Gators.

In other Florida transfer news, Andreu is also reporting that quarterback Tyler Murphy, who surprised head coach Will Muschamp with his decision to leave over the weekend, is considering Louisville as well as Boston College.  However, the school — or, more specifically, Muschamp — would block those moves, Andreu tweeted.

    The rats continue to flee the sinking ship. What a disaster of a program…

    Why would coach Boom block Hunter’s move? Different conference, not on schedule, etc. Just curious.

    Murphy wasn’t gonna have much of a chance to see the field next year with the 5 star QB Greer coming next year and Driskel already there so I can totally understand him leaving for a better chance at seeing the field and Silberman would most likely suffer the same fate so you can’t blame him for trying to get a chance to play as well, but one bad ok actually terrible season doesn’t really equal a disaster of a program…If we can fix are offense we should be just fine..

    Why would Muschamp block a move to Louisville? Probably because he’s still bitter that they smoked his ass in Florida’s last bowl game.

    Florida needs to have Driskel become the back-up QB because he will not lead this offense to the promise land. His passing is not great and he is slow as hell as a runner. Florida can do much better and I expect they will.

    This “report” is inaccurate. The Florida AD would make the call whether to block/not block a move to a specific school. This is not up to Muschamp.
