While TCU has suspended starting quarterback Casey Pachall following yet another substance abuse issue, the Horned Frogs are leaving the door open for a possible return next season if Pachall can complete his voluntary inpatient rehabilitation program that he enrolled in that could last somewhere between 30-60 days. Pachall has left TCU for the rest of the semester while he tries to straighten out his life off the field.
“Hopefully, what our plan is that he [Pachall] gets himself right and keeps the door open for us as far as an opportunity for him to be able to come back here and enroll in the spring,” TCU head coach Gary Patterson said. “He would be able to graduate in two semesters, which is the ultimate goal for us. Also, we’d get a great kid and also a good quarterback back.”
