AUSTIN (AP)  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.
