TCU's Casey Pachall admitted he used cocaine

Back in February it was discovered that four TCU Horned Frogs football players failed a drug test, but according to an open records request by, starting quarterback Casey Pachall failed a drug test:

Pachall told [officer J.] Sandoval he never witnessed any of the residents having or using narcotics, according to the police report. He went on to tell Sandoval he had smoked marijuana as recently as a week to two weeks prior to Feb. 15, 2012. He also said he smoked marijuana with [Tanner] Brock at least once in the past.


Pachall told Sandoval he failed the TCU student athlete drug test and smoked marijuana a day or two prior to the test.

Pachall told Sgt. Johnson he used cocaine possibly a year prior to February 15, 2012 and ecstasy seven months prior to February 15, 2012.

However, Pachall was at Big 12 media days and head coach Gary Patterson released a statement acknowledging that Pachall failed a drug test back in February:

We were aware of Casey testing positive on Feb. 1. I have always taken a very strong stand on student-athlete health and welfare. We have policies and educational programs in place to help guide our student-athletes. We are committed to helping them make healthy choices and have moved forward. We have had 25 drug tests in the last 18 months, including one by the NCAA at the Rose Bowl. We've had six drug tests since February."

The cocaine and ecstasy part is really what stands out in all of this.
