Former TCU quarterback Casey Pachall signed a three-year deal with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League on Tuesday, his father Stan Pachall said.

Stan Pachall said his son didn’t expect to be drafted during last week’s NFL draft, but said “Casey knew he wasn’t passed over because of talent and he was told that. There were a lot of clubs that really liked him.”

Pachall finished his Horned Frog career the all-time leader in completion percentage (62.9) and ranks third in passing yards (5,415), completions (431) and touchdown passes (42) despite only playing in 26 games the last three seasons. He missed nine games in 2012 after leaving the team in October to enter a substance abuse facility and missed five games in 2013 after breaking his arm in the second game of the season.

When asked why an NFL team didn’t sign him his son as a free agent, as many expected he’d be, the Stan Pachall said it was likely his son’s off the field issues in ‘12.

“I guess they don't think he has proved himself yet,” Stan Pachall said. “Some people think it’s funny that he is going to the CFL but he will be playing while most of the QBs drafted will be sitting the bench in the NFL. Casey is good with it and that’s all that matters. He knows what he has to do.”
