Source link : https://usa-news.biz/2024/06/25/texas/jim-schlossnagle-debunks-rumors-surrounding-texas-baseball-coaching-job/

After the conclusion of Texas A&M’s baseball season, Jim Schlossnagle declined to address ⁣the situation​ involving the Texas Longhorns. Earlier​ that ​day, the Longhorns had made the decision to part ways with head coach David Pierce‌ after his eight-year tenure. Given​ his prior working⁤ relationship with UT athletic director Chris Del Conte at TCU,⁢ Schlossnagle quickly emerged as a ⁣candidate to fill the vacancy left by ‌Pierce.

Following Texas A&M’s defeat to Tennessee ⁣in the College World Series finale, Schlossnagle avoided discussing the speculation surrounding the Texas coaching position. While speaking at the postgame press conference, Schlossnagle did not⁤ address the potential ‌opportunity at Texas directly.‍ However, TexAgs ​reporter Richard Zane alluded to the “rumor​ circulating today about a specific job opening” before questioning Schlossnagle about his future at Texas ‍A&M.

Expressing his frustration, Schlossnagle responded, “I think it’s pretty selfish of you to ask me​ that question, to be honest with you. I left my family to be the coach ⁤at Texas⁤ A&M. ‌I took the job at Texas A&M‌ with the intention of never seeking another job, and that remains unchanged in ⁣my mind.”⁣ He continued, “I sacrificed a significant part of​ my ⁤life to accept this position, pouring every ounce of‌ my soul into it. I have dedicated myself entirely to this job. So, please make ⁣note ‌of that.”

With an extensive⁢ coaching career‍ spanning 23 seasons‍ at UNLV, ⁢TCU, and Texas⁤ A&M, the⁤ 53-year-old Schlossnagle has accumulated⁤ an ​impressive‍ 946-455 record. His ‌coaching accomplishments ⁤include seven ‍appearances in Omaha and the distinction of being ⁣one of four coaches to ​secure multiple College World‌ Series victories with ⁤different schools.
