TCU News: Schloss (and his staff) Here to Stay

TCU's coach signed a big extension, rumored to make him the highest paid coach in the country. Del Conte also said that his assistants had new deals in hand as well, quelling rumors that Saarloos may be a hot name for open jobs.

After rumors that Texas was going to make another big push for TCU Baseball's esteemed coach, fans fears were put at ease by a simple tweet. Credit CDC, who always gets his man (or women), often with a bit of humor attached.We can indeed put the pepto away, CDC, because not only is Schloss sticking around, but pitching coach Kirk Saarloos and hitting coach Bill Mosiello were also given raises and extensions as part of the new deal.

“We had worked everything out, but it was just a matter of getting through the College World Series,” Del Conte said. “We wanted to make sure that when we got back from Omaha, we would meet first thing and take care of what we needed to do."

The national narrative is 100% positive, as just about everybody involved in college baseball seems to think that Schloss and TCU belong together, whatever the cost.

First, even if the Longhorns had seriously pursued Schlossnagle, I still maintain that he probably would have stayed put. But, the Frogs can now rest easy, and frankly, the terms of that contract are very much deserved for a man and coach who has experienced so much success at TCU, while also establishing it as the premier program in the State of Texas, not an easy task with Rice, Texas, Texas A&M and others as competition.

For the second time this year, the Horns have fallen short in pursuit of a purple-clad coach. Whoops.

As the Longhorns embarked on their 28th day without a coach, Schlossnagle re-upped with TCU for six more seasons on Monday. The moment was captured by TCU athletic director Chis Del Conte, who tweeted a photo of Schlossnagle putting a pen to documents with the caption, “Time to put the Pepto-Bismol away as the man has inked his well deserved extension.”
