UW’s Cyler Miles suspended for Hawaii game

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 Seattle sports radio that he was suspending quarterback Cyler Miles for the season opener at Hawaii.

Miles was investigated but not charged after it was alleged that the Colorado native assaulted Seahawks fans following Seattle’s Super Bowl victory over Denver.

The quarterback, who played in eight games last season and started one, was also suspended from all team activities during Petersen’s first spring practice session since coming to UW from Boise State.
