Schlossnagle, an assistant at Tulane from 1994-2001 who was a part of the school’s first-ever College World Series team, has spent the last 18 seasons in Fort Worth, where he guided the Horned Frogs to 775 victories and five trips to Omaha. After first taking TCU to the CWS in 2010, the Frogs made four consecutive trips from 2014-17.
