Texas Christian University quarterback Casey Pachall was indefinitely suspended today following his arrest for a DWI just hours before. This is his second time getting into trouble this year causing issues for the 15th place ranked Horn Frogs chances of a Big 12 title.
Coach of the Horn Frogs, Gary Patterson announced his suspension, saying his quarterback “obviously needs help.”
Pachell is 21 years old. He was pulled over after midnight when he blew a stop sign and had a blood alcohol level over the legal limit of 0.08.
He was released on a $1,000 bail.
“I’ve got a young football team and a person who obviously needs help,” Patterson told The Associated Press. “Until I can come up with some answers, it’s not about one season, it’s about a lot of seasons.”
Pachall has 948 passing yards and 10 touchdowns with one interception, and he’s fourth in the Big 12 and fifth nationally in passing efficiency.
Redshirt freshman Trevone Boykin is the likely starter at quarterback Saturday.
