    Washington quarterback Cyler Miles, who will be a sophomore next season, had been suspended while police investigated whether he was involved in a Super Bowl night fight.

SEATTLE — Cyler Miles will remain a member of the Washington Huskies football team. Damore’ea Stringfellow will not.
Both players were suspended in early February after allegations of assault during a post-Super Bowl celebration in the University District on Feb. 2. Huskies coach Chris Petersen announced via a brief press release on Wednesday that Miles, a third-year sophomore quarterback from Centennial, Colo., has been reinstated and will participate in team activities going forward.
But according to the same release, Stringfellow, a sophomore receiver, “has decided to transfer” to another school. Miles was not charged in connection with the incident due to insufficient evidence, but Stringfellow was charged with three misdemeanors and pleaded guilty to each charge in April.
The release did not specify whether Stringfellow was told he could no longer play for the Huskies, or if he was welcome to return but chose not to.
As is standard operating procedure, UW said it will have no further comment on the matter.
Stringfellow was charged with two counts of fourth-degree assault and one count of malicious mischief after the King County Prosecutor’s Office determined that he assaulted a man and a woman, in separate incidents on the same night, and also damaged a camera lens belonging to the woman.
The receiver from Perris, Calif., accepted a plea deal that included a sentence of five days on a work crew, in addition to $693 in fines (or 70 hours of community service). Stringfellow was also ordered to complete “Level 2” anger management counseling.
Miles, the most experienced quarterback on the roster, was the presumed favorite to step into the starting quarterback job left vacant by the departure of Keith Price, though it’s unknown where he’ll rank on the depth chart when practices resume in August.
Petersen side-stepped that question during the spring. Troy Williams, a redshirt freshman, and Jeff Lindquist, a redshirt sophomore, were the only quarterbacks who participated in spring practices.
UW also announced that sophomore running back Ryan McDaniel will retire due to recurring knee injuries.
