TCU quarterback Casey Pachall admitted to police that he failed a drug test in February.
TCU QB Casey Pachall apologizes for his transgressions and WR Josh Boyce speaks on the upcoming season.
The admission came in a police report after his former roommate, Tanner Brock, was arrested in a drug sweep. The interview took place on Feb. 15, 2012.
According to the police report, which was obtained by TCU 360 through an open records request, Pachall spoke with two officers and told them that he had smoked marijuana within a week or two weeks of the interview. He also said that he and Brock had smoked marijuana in the past.
He also said he had used cocaine about a year before the interview, and estacy seven months before the interview. He told police he had only used the two drugs once each.
"We were aware of Casey testing positive on Feb. 1," TCU coach Gary Patterson said in a statement. "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," Patterson said in the statement. "We've had six drug tests since February."
TCU 360 said that Pachall did not return an interview request.
Brock plead guilty and was sentenced to four years probation in June. If he fulfills the terms of his probation, the charges will be dropped from his record.
