Per the school, university medical staff advised Miles that it would be “in his best interest to retire.”
Miles, of course, heeded that advice and issues a statement of his own.
“I am grateful to Coach Petersen and his staff for all the opportunities I have been given here at Washington,” Miles said. “I am disappointed that my hip injuries will not allow me to continue playing, but I am committed to earning my UW degree and will leave the program with many great friendships and valuable lessons learned.”
Miles’ retirement leaves Washington with four quarterbacks on its roster: junior Jeff Lindquist, redshirt freshman K.J. Carta-Samuels, freshman Jake Browning and JUCO transfer Tony Rodriguez. Considering how Miles threw for 2,815 yards and 21 touchdowns in two seasons, hopefully the transition will go smoothly
Washington went 8-6 (4-5 Pac-12) in its first season under head coach Chris Petersen and lost to Oklahoma State in the Cactus Bowl. The Huskies will open the 2015 campaign on September 4 when they visit Bronco Field to play Petersen’s former team, Boise State.
