Gary Patterson tells @siriusxmcollege on Pachall's suspension: "Is it 1 game or for rest of the season? I don't know"— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) October 4, 2012
The junior signal-caller for the No. 15 Horned Frogs was arrested for driving while intoxicated on Wednesday night. That DWI came a few months after Pachall's admission of a failed drug test and recent cocaine and ecstasy use.
Patterson issued a brief statement on Wednesday explaining that while he's responsible for winning football games, hes also responsible for helping his players with their lives.
TCU assistant athletics director of media relations Mark Cohen said there will be no further comment or media availability from the university.
Redshirt freshman Trevone Boykin is expected to take over at quarterback for the Frogs. In limited action in 2012, he's thrown for 79 yards and a touchdown on 9-of-10 passing, as well as 122 yards rushing on 12 carries.
