One of the more pressing issues facing head coach Chris Petersen as he ventures into his first season as the head coach of the Washington Huskies is replacing Keith Price at quarterback. Well he’s getting a little help with that dilemma as the team has reinstated the signal caller that was slated to replace Price in the first place, Cyler Miles.
Washington QB Cyler Miles, expected to replace Keith Price as starter, reinstated to team

Miles was suspended from the team back in February following an incident where he was linked to an assault following the Seahawks’ victory in the Super Bowl. Around one month ago, Petersen said that there was no timetable for Miles’ return.
The Washington quarterback saw action in eight games last season, throwing for 418 yards on 37-of-61 passing with four touchdowns and two interceptions. He also rushed the ball 23 times for 200 yards.
Petersen is entering his first season as head coach of the Huskies following one of the more successful runs in recent memory with the Boise State Broncos, so having a somewhat experienced QB in place to run his offense for the 2014 season will be a huge boost to momentum, as long as Miles can keep himself out of trouble.
