Texas A&M made it official, Wednesday, announcing the hiring of Jim Schlossnagle as its new baseball coach.
Schlossnagle makes the move after 18 seasons at TCU that included five trips to the College World Series. He replaces Rob Childress, whose contract wasn't renewed after the Aggies missed the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2006.
Schlossnagle says, “With the resources and facilities available at this world-class university, the foundation is here to win championships and make the 12th Man a regular visitor to Omaha."
Schlossnagle was 734-346 at TCU, which went to the College World Series in 2010 and then made four consecutive trips to Omaha from 2014-17.
Childress was 622-336-3 in 16 seasons at Texas A&M, including a school-record 13 consecutive NCAA appearances from 2007-19. The Aggies were 29-27 overall this season and missed the SEC Tournament after going 9-21 in conference play and finishing last in the SEC West.
Texas A&M went to the College World Series twice under Childress, in 2011 and 2017.
