Reports: Coach Jim Schlossnagle leaving A&M for Texas

Schlossnagle

Less than 24 hours after Texas A&M baseball coach Jim Schlossnagle scolded a reporter for asking whether he would have interest in taking the same job at Texas, multiple reports indicated Tuesday he has done just that.

Schlossnagle, whose Aggies made the school’s first appearance in a Men’s College World Series championship series before falling in three games to Tennessee, went 135-62 in three seasons there. Texas A&M was 53-15 this season and made the MCWS for the second time in his tenure.

Texas finished this season at 36-24 and 297-162 in eight seasons under David Pierce, who parted ways with the school on Monday in a mutual decision, according to athletic director Chris Del Conte.

Schlossnagle, 53, previously worked for Del Conte at TCU from 2004 to 2021. The coach is 946-455 in 23 seasons, with seven trips to the MCWS.

Texas has not made it to the MCWS since 2022, advancing to a Super Regional in 2023 and a regional this season.

On Monday night, after the Aggies lost the deciding game to Tennessee 6-5 in Omaha, Neb., Schlossnagle wanted no part of talking about Texas.

“I took the job at Texas A&M to never take another job again, and that hasn’t changed in my mind. That’s unfair to talk about something like that. … I gave up a big part of my life to come take this job, and I’ve poured every ounce of my soul in this job. And I’ve given this job every single ounce I could possibly give it. So write that.”
