FORT WORTH —  

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — TCU coach Gary Patterson met Sunday with the school’s chancellor and athletic director about suspended quarterback Casey Pachall.

Patterson said he couldn’t say anything more about Pachall until after some other things got done. He wouldn’t elaborate.

Pachall was indefinitely suspended after being arrested early Thursday on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. That came eight months after the junior quarterback admitted to police that he smoked marijuana and failed a team-administered drug test.

Asked if there was any change in Pachall’s status with the team, Patterson said, “not at this point.”

Redshirt freshman Trevone Boykin threw for 270 yards and had three interceptions Saturday in a 37-23 home loss to Iowa State.

TCU (4-1), which plays Saturday at Baylor, dropped from 15th to out of the latest AP Top 25.
