The season is over for Texas Christian's former starting quarterback Casey Pachall, according to reports from the Dallas/Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The junior, who was arrested last week on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, has left school and is enrolling in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility, says head coach Gary Patterson.

The coach says Pachall will have a chance to enroll again next semester and rejoin the team.

Pachall was arrested Thursday after officers pulled him over when he allegedly ran a stop sign near the Fort Worth campus. Pachall had run in to trouble earlier in the year when he was caught in the middle of a drug bust on campus and allegedly admitted to officers that he had used drugs. At the time, he was not arrested and his status on the team remained active.
