SEATTLE (AP) — Chris Petersen can’t wait to see quarterback Cyler Miles take his first snaps in fall camp, even if Miles will be a spectator when Washington opens its season Aug. 30 at Hawaii.

Petersen spoke Sunday about the start of his first fall camp at Washington after spending the previous eight seasons as the head coach at Boise State.

Miles situation has drawn the most attention since Petersen’s arrival. Miles was the presumptive replacement for Keith Price, who finished his career as one of the top passers in Washington history. But Miles was suspended for spring practices while police investigated his role in a Super Bowl night fight. Miles was reinstated after not being charged by prosecutors but was suspended for the season opener.
