The University of Washington announced Monday that fourth-year quarterback Cyler Miles has decided to retire from football due to a “chronic hip injury.”
TEMPE, Ariz. – After he dressed at his locker following one of the Washington Huskies’ most disappointing losses of the 2014 season, quarterback Cyler Miles reflected on a frustrating end to a frustrating year. UW’s 30-22 loss to Oklahoma State in the Cactus Bowl ended a rocky, disjointed season in which the Huskies’ defense made more big plays than most teams in the country, but the offense made so few and the defense failed often enough to contain the Pac-12’s more high-powered offenses that UW failed to defeat a single FBS opponent with a winning record.
SEATTLE – For a team that has lost two games in a row, and for an offense that ranks as the worst in the Pac-12 Conference, the Huskies are optimistic entering Saturday’s game against Colorado. John Ross III credits Cyler Miles for that.
SEATTLE – The good news for the Washington Huskies is that the top two running backs on the depth chart seem on track to play Saturday, despite suffering injuries in a loss at Oregon. The encouraging news is the starting quarterback may be available, even after dealing with concussion-like symptoms.
SEATTLE – Chris Petersen is not giving up on Cyler Miles. Parsing Petersen’s words during his Monday press conference, that was the gist – that despite a 15-of-29 passing performance that yielded just 98 yards in a 20-13 loss to Stanford, Miles, a third-year sophomore, is not solely at fault. And one lousy outing will not cost him his job as Washington’s starting quarterback.
For once, Eastern Washington quarterback Vernon Adams is flying under the radar. Earlier this week, new University of Washington coach Chris Petersen faced a roomful of reporters to deliver the news that Cyler Miles will start at quarterback when the Huskies face the Eagles on Saturday.
Cyler Miles will start at quarterback for the Washington Huskies in their home opener Saturday against Eastern Washington. That shouldn’t be much of a surprise for those who watched Washington’s offense shut down in the second half of their 17-16 season-opening football victory at Hawaii.
LOS ANGELES – Even before Chris Petersen took the podium at Pac-12 media day, the Washington coach set the agenda for the Huskies interview session when he told sports radio host Dave “Softy” Mahler that he was suspending quarterback Cyler Miles for the season opener at Hawaii. As such, Petersen spent much of his time in front of the conference’s assembled media explaining why a single-game suspension was sufficient punishment for the favorite in the competition to succeed Keith Price as Washington’s starting quarterback.
SEATTLE – Washington reinstated quarterback Cyler Miles, who had been suspended while police investigated whether he was involved in a Super Bowl night fight. Huskies coach Chris Petersen said suspended receiver Demore’ea Stringfellow, who was charged with two counts of fourth-degree assault and one count of malicious mischief after two incidents on Feb. 2, will transfer.
SEATTLE – Washington football coach Chris Petersen will begin his first spring practices with the Huskies without quarterback Cyler Miles, the backup to Keith Price last season. Petersen suspended Miles and wide receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow indefinitely in February for an undisclosed violation of team rules. Miles and Stringfellow remain part of Washington’s roster but Petersen said Monday there is nothing new on their status with the team.
