According to a story distributed by the Associated Press on Sunday, TCU football head coach Gary Patterson met with the school’s chancellor and athletic director regarding the status of quarterback Casey Pachall, who was suspended indefinitely this past Thursday after being arrested for suspicion of driving while intoxicated.
On Monday, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram interviewed Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro, who played with Pachall at Brownwood. Vaccaro stated in the online article that Pachall told him he plans to, “take some time off and get everything together.”
The Associated Press’ Sunday article further stated, “Patterson said he couldn’t say anything more about Pachall until after some other things got done. He wouldn’t elaborate.”
The Star-Telegram added that Patterson will announce Pachall’s status with the team during Tuesday's media luncheon at 12:30 p.m.
Pachall, a Brownwood graduate, missed Saturday’s 37-23 Horned Frog home loss to Iowa State as TCU’s NCAA-best 12-game win streak was snapped. The Horned Frogs are scheduled to visit Baylor in Big 12 action Saturday.
In TCU’s first four games, Pachall completed 64 of 97 passes for 948 yards with 10 touchdowns and one interception. For his career, the TCU junior has connected on 298 of 449 attempts for 3,947 yards with 36 scoring strikes and eight picks.
Pachall’s replacement at quarterback, Trevone Boykin, passed for 270 yards against Iowa State, but also threw three interceptions.
