TCU coach Gary Patterson met Sunday with Chancellor Victor Boschini and Athletic Director Chris Del Conte about suspended quarterback Casey Pachall.
Patterson said he couldn't say anything more about Pachall until after some other things got done. He is scheduled to clarify Pachall's status with the team during his regular media luncheon Tuesday.
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” at the post-game press conference.
Pachall was indefinitely suspended after being arrested early Thursday on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. That came eight months after the junior quarterback admitted to police that he smoked marijuana and failed a team-administered drug test.
Asked if there was any change in Pachall's status with the team, Patterson said, "not at this point."
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.
