Patterson: "Pachall Suspended Indefinitely"

TCU starting quarterback Casey Pachall was suspended indefinitely on Thursday morning following an arrest for driving while intoxicated.

TCU starting quarterback Casey Pachall has been suspended indefinitely after being charged with driving while intoxicated early Thursday morning.

Reports are that Pachall ran a stop sign and hit a curb while driving his vehicle around 1 a.m. Thursday morning near the TCU campus.

TCU head coach Gary Patterson released a statement confirming his starting quarterback's suspension.

"Casey Pachall has been suspended indefinitely from competition. My job as a head coach is to win games, educate our kids and help them with their lives," said Patterson said in a statement released by the school. TCU had no further comment regarding the arrest.

Pachall had started 17 consecutive games for the Horned Frogs, going 15-2 in that span. In 2012, he was 64-of-97 for 948 yards with 10 scores and just one interception. TCU will now rely on redshirt freshman Trevone Boykin to take over the reins. The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder has added a spark to TCU's offense this season rushing for 122 yards and 1 score to go along with 74 yards through the air with 1 touchdown.

The #13 ranked Horned Frogs host 3-1 Iowa State this Saturday at 2:30 as Boykin will face one of the top defenses in the Big 12.
