Chris Petersen says Cyler Miles could return this spring

Speaking with The Seattle Times, Washington Huskies head coach Chris Petersen didn’t rule out the possibility of suspended quarterback Cyler Miles returning to the team this spring:

“We just haven’t really decided on that whole situation. 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’s statement comes on the heels of Thursday’s announcement that Miles, unlike wide receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow, won’t face criminal charges for his alleged involvement in an assault earlier this year.
