Before the start of fall practice in August, Pachall said he needed to have the same expectations off the field that he did when he was playing.

“I know I’m not perfect,” Pachall said at the time. “But I’ve learned from those mistakes and I’m still learning. It’s a day-to-day process for me of trying to be a better person.”

Last season, after replacing TCU’s winningest quarterback Andy Dalton, Pachall set single-season school records with 2,921 yards passing and 228 completions. He threw 25 TDs with seven interceptions while the Frogs won 11 games, including a victory over Louisiana Tech in the Poinsettia Bowl.

While Boykin had been the backup quarterback the first four games, he was working out at tailback last week before Pachall’s arrest changed things. Sophomore Matt Brown, Pachall’s backup last season who had been moved to receiver, is now back in the quarterback mix.

Boyce said he was impressed how Boykin played against Iowa State on short notice.

“He had complete control of the huddle and did what a quarterback should do,” Boyce said. “I think he’ll be great. He’ll have a whole week of practice and we’ll help him out a lot.”
