SEATTLE – Washington Huskies quarterback Cyler Miles will be suspended for the team’s season opener against Hawaii after his involvement in a fight on the night of the Super Bowl.
Washington head coach Chris Peterson made the announcement to reporters at Pac-12 Media Day Thursday.
Miles and receiver Damore'ea Stringfellow were both suspended following the Feb. 2 fight while police investigated the incident.
Stringfellow was charged with two counts of fourth-degree assault and one count of malicious mischief. He later transferred.
When prosecutors made their charging decision, they said there was not enough evidence to charge Miles, who was with Stringfellow. Miles was reinstated in May.
Miles started one game last season as Keith Price's backup, and figured to start this year as a sophomore but missed all of spring practice. Without Miles around during spring practice, Jeff Lindquist and Troy Williams got the bulk of the reps at quarterback. Neither has thrown a pass in a college game.
Stringfellow was also expected to start after coming on late in his freshman season. He had eight catches for 147 yards and a touchdown at UCLA after starter Kasen Williams went down with a season-ending foot injury.
