Kingsbury takes the reins at Texas Tech

(Continued)

DALLAS —

“We’ll get them to fall camp and probably go two weeks, it varies, before we name a starter and try to get the scrimmage in,” Kingsbury said. “See how the 7-on-7 is going this summer, seen how the film is, and just who separates themselves. We did that last year at Texas A&M and it worked out a little bit for us. Hopefully we have that same success.”

Casey Pachall is back for his senior season at TCU, where he has started 17 of 25 games. But he played only four games last season before leaving school for substance abuse rehabilitation.

Patterson hasn’t said yet if Pachall or Trevone Boykin, who threw for 2,054 yards and 15 touchdowns as a freshman last season, will be start for the Horned Frogs. Pachall was still picked as the preseason All-Big 12 quarterback in the media poll.

“When he came back in the spring, to see the color back in his face, the conversations we had that we weren’t having when he left, to me, told me right away that we’d done the right thing,” Patterson said. “The easiest two answers for me to have answered and done was, number one, is just to suspend him for a couple of games and then let him come back and play, but that wouldn’t have fixed the problem. Two, to have just gotten rid of him, then what we did for everything we told him in recruiting about how we cared about him, how we did something for them in their life, and how we wanted to graduate them and do it is out the window. ‘’
