Damore’ea Stringfellow is out. Cyler Miles is back in.

Washington football coach Chris Petersen on Wednesday announced that Miles, the favorite to take over as UW’s starting quarterback next season, had been reinstated to the team after a three-month suspension.

In the same news release, Petersen announced that Stringfellow, a sophomore wide receiver, had decided to transfer to an unspecified program.

Both players had been linked to assaults of two Seahawks fans shortly after the Seahawks’ Super Bowl victory over the Denver Broncos on Feb. 2. Petersen suspended them three days later.

Prosecutors did not find enough evidence to charge Miles.

Stringfellow pleaded guilty last month to three gross misdemeanor charges. In a plea agreement with prosecutors, Stringfellow was sentenced to five days on a work crew, fined $693 and ordered to attend anger-management counseling.

Stringfellow’s attorney told a King County judge on April 16 that the wide receiver had not consumed alcohol or drugs before assaulting two Seahawks fans. During the altercations, Stringfellow was “backing up his quarterback” who is a “staunch” Broncos fan, the attorney said.

Neither Petersen nor Miles were made available for comment by UW.

Miles, a sophomore from Centennial, Colo., near Denver, started one game for injured senior Keith Price in 2013, helping the Huskies to a 69-27 victory at Oregon State. For the season, he appeared in eight games, completing 37 of 61 passes for 418 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions. He also ran for 200 yards on 23 carries.

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.

The Huskies will also add one more quarterback, incoming freshman K.J. Carta-Samuels, this summer.

As a true freshman, the 6-foot-3, 229-pound 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.

Note

• UW also announced that running back Ryan McDaniel has retired from the program because of knee injuries.

McDaniel joined the UW program in 2012 and redshirted that season while recovering from a high-school knee injury. He played in one game last season, with 10 carries for 47 yards in UW’s win over Idaho State.
