Washington coach Chris Petersen didn’t rule out the possibility that suspended sophomore Cyler Miles, UW’s most experienced quarterback, could return to the team this spring. The King County prosecutor’s office on Thursday announced that Miles, linked to an alleged assault of a Seahawks fan, won’t be charged in the incident.

Wide receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow was charged with three gross misdemeanors in the case.

I asked Petersen after practice today if it was safe to assume that Miles wouldn’t participate in practices the rest of the spring.

“No. It’s not. We just haven’t really decided on that whole situation,” Petersen said. “It’s kind of one day, one week at a time. There’s no reason to rush anything, and we’re always going to do the right thing. I know everyone thinks they have their opinion on what the right thing is, but we’re going to do the right thing by the school, by this program and by the kids as well. I’ve said this before: This is such a political job and I’m never going to make decisions because of political reasons to make me look better, because you think ‘Oh that’s the right thing.’ Well, that’s not why we’re in this thing; we’re in (it) to do the right thing on all accounts. Sometimes, things just need to play out.”

Petersen was asked if there was still fact-finding involved with the situation.

“Not necessarily,” he said. “Not in my mind. … When we come to a conclusion on this, we’ll let everyone know.”
