TCU starting quarterback Casey Pachall has been suspended indefinitely after he was arrested for suspicion of driving while intoxicated early Thursday morning.

Coach Gary Patterson announced the suspension hours after police say Pachall was pulled over for running a stop sign near TCU’s Fort Worth campus.

“My job as a head coach is to win games, educate our kids and help them with their lives,” Patterson said in a statement, which added that TCU would have no further comment. Pachall’s “breath specimen” was over the legal limit (0.08), said Pedro Criado, Fort Worth police spokesman. Pachall was transferred to the Mansfield (Texas) jail, where his bond was set at $1,000.

Pachall, 21, lived in the same house as former TCU linebacker Tanner Brock, who was among four Horned Frogs football players arrested in February during a campus-wide drug bust. Pachall admitted to drug use in police interviews, but was not arrested.

TCU confirmed that Pachall had failed a Feb. 1 drug test, just two weeks before the arrests. Pachall attended a university drug and alcohol awareness program and was not suspended for any game time by Patterson.

Pachall, a junior, started all 13 games for TCU a year ago, and had 948 passing yards and 10 touchdowns for the 4-0 Horned Frogs, who are ranked No. 15. TCU is set to host Iowa State on Saturday.
