SEATTLE (AP) - Washington quarterback Cyler Miles has decided to retire from college football due to a chronic hip injury.

Washington announced the decision on Monday. The school said the hip injury has persisted through Miles’ career and doctors have advised him not to keep playing.

Miles was suspended for spring practice last year after his role in two on-campus assaults in February 2014. He was also suspended for the season opener but ended up starting 12 games, throwing for 2,397 yards, 17 touchdowns and four interceptions.

In a statement, Miles said he is disappointed the ailment will end his career, but he intends to finish his degree. Miles had taken a leave from the Washington program after the 2014 season.

Washington will go into fall camp with four quarterbacks: presumptive starter Jeff Lindquist, junior college transfer Tony Rodriguez and youngsters K.J. Carta-Samuels and freshman Jake Browning.
