The Chris Petersen era at Washington will begin with a question mark at the quarterback position.

The Huskies new head coach said Monday that Cyler Miles, the backup to starting quarterback Keith Price in 2013, remains suspended and will not be with the team when for the start of spring practice.

Petersen suspended Miles and wide receiver Damore'ea Stringfellow for a violation of team rules in February.

"There has been no talk of those guys. They haven't been here. We've moved on and we're going. It's not about those guys. It's about the guys in the room," Petersen said via the Associated Press. "We'll just let that play out and see how it goes."

Miles appeared in eight games as a redshirt freshman last season and started at Oregon State. Against the Beavers, Miles completed 15-of-24 passes for 162 yards and one touchdown with no interceptions.

Coming out of high school in Centennial, Colo., 247Sports ranked Miles as a four-star prospect and the No. 2 dual-threat quarterback in his class. Redshirt sophomore Jeff Lindquist and redshirt freshman Troy Williams will be the only scholarship quarterbacks in spring practice as long as Miles is on the sideline.
