Leaving TCU behind To say Schlossnagle had an impressive track record prior to coming to A&M would be a massive understatement. With 734 wins with the Horned Frogs, the Maryland native is exiting Fort Worth as TCU’s all-time winningest coach. Also at TCU, he recorded four consecutive trips to Omaha from 2014 to 2017. During his final season with the Horned Frogs, Schlossnagle led TCU to a 41-19 overall record.

A player’s program Schlossnagle said that while he hasn’t looked at the current roster heavily in depth, he wants his program to be defined by his players.
On the 2021 roster, senior infielder Will Frizzel left his mark. The Rockwall native was named to the All-American Second team. 12 players on the most recent roster were seniors or graduating students. The 2022 roster will be posted when available. “I knew if I was to ever leave TCU, it had to fit a perfect criteria and it had to happen at a perfect time, professionally and personally,” Schlossnagle said. “And all of those things lined up. It was just a matter of getting rid of the emotions of leaving a program that I had been living and breathing for 18 years.”
“The program belongs to the players. This is not my baseball program. It’s my job to oversee the program,” Schlossnagle said. In his introductory speech, Schlossnagle defined his own three core values to be excellence, selflessness and energy. A&M also has five well-known values of their own, which all Aggies, athletes, students, faculty and former students alike hold to the highest of standards.
“We hope to add to [the tradition and culture] by putting a great product on the field and giving everybody something even more to cheer about,” Schlossnagle said. “I was handed a three-ring binder when I landed yesterday, and the first page was all of the traditions. So I’m learning.” Core values
