TCU head football coach to decide the fate of quarterback Casey Pachall Tuesday
Pachall is currently on indefinite suspension.
FORT WORTH Head coach Gary Patterson will make a decision on Casey Pachall's status on Tuesday, according to the Star-Telegram.
Pachall, TCU’s starting quarterback, was suspended indefinitely on Thursday after he was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.
Director of Athletics Media Relations Mark Cohen has not returned an email to TCU 360 as of late Sunday afternoon.
After the Horned Frogs’ first loss of the season and a suspended Casey Pachall, Patterson said, “I can’t feel worse than I do right now. I promise you.”
According to the police report, Officer N. Lehman saw Pachall, 21, fail to stop on Devitt Street before he ran over a curb with his right rear tire. Pachall was arrested shortly after midnight on suspicion of driving with a blood alcohol content of greater than or equal to 0.15. The legal limit in Texas is 0.08.
Stan and Debbie Pachall, Casey Pachall’s parents, picked him up at the Mansfield Jail on Thursday.
“His problem is he’s a starting quarterback and that’s why we’re in this position that we’re in right now,” Stan Pachall said on Thursday at the Mansfield Jail, where his son was being held. “If he was just a regular student at TCU, you guys wouldn’t be talking to me right now."
"And so, he’s got a whole lot more responsibility on his shoulders, and he needs to be responsible for himself,” Stan Pachall said. “Now, we’re going to start that journey, and we’ll see where it leads us.”
