Robert Marve to Transfer

Redshirt freshman quarterback Robert Marve was granted his release today from the Hurricanes by head coach Randy Shannon.

According to the University of Miami, Coach Shannon granted Robert Marve his release after a tumultuous second season. Marve started all but two games for the Hurricanes this season, completing 116 of 213 passes for 1293 yards with 9 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

Despite earning the starting job in the summer, Marve split time with freshman Jacory Harris, who presumably takes over as the 'Canes starting quarterback. The Hurricanes struggled on offense under both quarterbacks, but Harris seemed to enjoy slightly more success behind center.

Marve also had off-field issues this season, getting suspended twice, once before the first game against Charleston Southern for disciplinary reasons and once before the Emerald Bowl against Cal for missing class.

Marve was one of Randy Shannon's first recruits, signing with the Hurricanes late after committing to Alabama. The Tampa Plant product was a four-star recruit and won Florida's prestigious "Mr. Football" award his senior year after leading Plant to the Class-4A State Championship.
