TCU’s Jim Schlossnagle probably staying put, won’t be Augie’s replacement

TCU’s Jim Schlossnagle has agreed in principle to an extension to remain as Horned Frogs baseball coach, a source familiar with the Texas search to find a replacement for Augie Garrido told the American-Statesman on Thursday morning.

The source said Schlossnagle has not signed the extension but has agreed to certain numbers, which could not be obtained. He is currently making $764,000 a year. Garrido was making $1 million.

Schlossnagle and Florida’s Kevin O’Sullivan have been considered the favorites to replace Garrido, 77, who was fired at Texas last week.

The source also said Schlossnagle has not been approached or contacted by Texas and that he would have listened — and still might — to any Longhorn discussion. But he added it would be much more difficult to pry him out of Fort Worth.
