College student make mistakes. They occur on a daily basis across the country and college athletes, like University of Washington quarterback Cyler Miles, are no exception. The Huskies star made a formal apology Wednesday for his actions following the Super Bowl. The violations of school policies have led to his suspension from the team’s season opener at Hawaii.
Miles’ actions were investigated after a Super Bowl night fight that saw former teammate Damore’ea Stringfellow dismissed from the program. Miles was unable to participate in spring practices, but is still expected to be the team’s long-term starter after playing in eight games, recording 418 yards passing and four touchdowns while also rushing for 200 yards.
In the meantime, Washington will turn to either redshirt freshman Troy Williams or Jeff Lindquist for the first game of the season, but head coach Chris Petersen cautioned fans to expect Miles would take over the position in week two.
