The Seattle Times has reported that Cyler Miles, the Huskies starting quarterback, has announced that he is retiring from football because of a hip injury he sustained in high school that will not heal.
In a statement , Coach Petersen expressed support for Miles, and now has to figure out what he will do for a starter against Boise State September 4th.
Miles played for two seasons with the Huskies completing over 60% of his passes both years, 21 touchdowns and 6 interceptions during his time with Washington.
Who does Petersen have to choose from? Jeff Lindquist, a junior QB with the most experience behind Cyler Miles. Lindquist played in 7 games last year.
Behind Lindquist are one freshman (Jake Browning), one red shirt freshman (K.J. Carta-Samuels), and JUCO transfer (Tony Rodriguez).
