Texas quarterback Garrett Gilbert, who lost
his starting job after two games and then had season-ending
shoulder surgery, plans to transfer.
Gilbert has been given an unconditional release from his
scholarship to find another school.
Gilbert, a former high school national player of the year, came
off the bench as a freshman to replace injured Colt McCoy in the
2010 BCS championship game that ended with a loss to Alabama.
He started every game in the 2010 season when Texas fell to 5-7
and missed a bowl game for the first time since 1997.
Gilbert won a training camp battle to keep the job this season
but was pulled for Case McCoy and David Ash midway through a 17-16
win over BYU in the second game.
