Florida currently has two scholarship quarterbacks after the departure of Skyler Mornhinweg.

Coach Jim McElwain said Wednesday that Morninwheg transferred to Columbia.

The son of NFL coach Marty Mornhinweg, Skyler played in three games in 2013. He finished the season 44-63 passing for 344 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. He started the Gators' final two games of the season; losses to Georgia Southern and Florida State.

He didn't record any statistics in 2014 and served as Florida's No. 3 quarterback behind Treon Harris and the now-graduated Jeff Driskel. He made headlines for reportedly getting into a fight with offensive lineman Gerald Willis last season.

Columbia's coach in 2014, Pete Mangurian, resigned at the end of last season after allegations of mistreatment by players. The team has a 21-game losing streak and Al Bagnoli was named the new head coach in February. Columbia last won on November 10, 2012.

Harris and Will Grier, who redshirted in 2014, are now the only scholarship quarterbacks on the roster. Though according to the AP, the Gators may get some help soon. And no, we don't mean Everett Golson.

Florida would be Del Rio's second SEC school. He transferred from Alabama after the 2013 season and went to Oregon State. Del Rio, who was granted immediate eligibility at Oregon State, was 8-18 passing for 141 yards in 2014.

Golson, the former Notre Dame quarterback, reportedly visited Florida on Tuesday after he visited Florida State on Monday.
