Washington quarterback Cyler Miles has been reinstated to the team after a three-month suspension, but suspended wide receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow will transfer to another program, UW coach Chris Petersen announced Wednesday afternoon in a press release.
Stringfellow pleaded guilty last month to three gross misdemeanor charges related to his assault of two Seahawks fans during two incidents shortly after the Seahawks’ Super Bowl victory over the Denver Broncos on Feb. 2. Miles had also been linked to one of the assaults, but prosecutors did not find enough evidence to charge the sophomore quarterback.
Neither Petersen nor Miles would be available for comment, according to the press release.
Miles, a sophomore from Centennial, Colo., near Denver, is the favorite to take over as the Huskies’ starting quarterback in 2014. He started one game for injured senior Keith Price in 2013 and led UW to a 69-27 victory at Oregon State.
Redshirt sophomore Jeff Lindquist and redshirt freshman Troy Williams were the only quarterbacks to participate in UW’s first spring practices under Petersen. Neither has thrown a pass in a college game.
As a true freshman, Stringfellow, from Perris, Calif., played in 12 games for UW in 2013, starting the final three. He had 20 catches for 259 yards and one touchdown reception, from Miles, against UCLA.
It’s unknown to where Stringfellow will transfer.
UW also announced that running back Ryan McDaniel has retired from the program because of knee injuries. McDaniel joined the UW program in the spring of 2012 and redshirted that season due to a high-school knee injury. He played in one game last season, carrying the ball 10 times for 47 yards in Washington’s win over Idaho State.
