TCU baseball coach Jim Schlossnagle said tonight that he has withdrawn his name from consideration for the Auburn head coaching vacancy.
“Sometimes as a coach when you look at other opportunities you learn it confirms how great a situation you already already have,’’ he said. “I know it will make me an even better coach for TCU.’’
Schlossnagle met with Auburn school officials about the vacancy Sunday in Atlanta. Auburn is looking to replace Tom Slater, who resigned on May 17 after four seasons.
Schlossnagle, who is 211-102 at TCU, has guided the Horned Frogs to five consecutive regional appearances, as well as three straight Mountain West Conference regular season and tournament titles.
“It speaks to the greatness of TCU and players and coaches and how well they’ve done,’’ Schlossnagle said of being considered for the position. “I don’t look at every job that comes along. I don’t chase jobs and never have.’’
