Texas A&M baseball coaching search 2024: Candidates, hot board, names to watch from Aggies insiders

Written by on June 29, 2024

The Texas A&M Aggies came up just short in their quest for a first World Series championship this year, falling to Tennessee in Game 3 on Monday night. They are now in need of a new coach, as Jim Schlossnagle left to take the same role at Texas. Schlossnagle’s departure led to several Texas A&M players immediately entering the transfer portal, so the administration will be looking to fill the vacancy quickly to keep the roster intact. New athletic director Trev Alberts has plenty of resources to work with, making Texas A&M a signature job for potential candidates.

The Aggies are also coming off their best season in school history, so their new coach will take over at a program that has momentum. If you love the Aggies, or just want to know who will be calling the shots for Texas A&M in 2025, be sure to see what the proven team of insiders are saying at GigEm247, the 247Sports affiliate that covers Texas A&M.

Top Texas A&M baseball coach candidates

One name the GigEm247 staff has identified as a potential target is Wake Forest head coach Tom Walter. Formerly the head coach at George Washington and New Orleans, Walter went to Wake Forest in 2010 and has slowly built the Demon Deacons into a force. They have made the NCAA Tournament three times in a row and went to Omaha in 2023 following an outstanding 54-12 campaign. 

He’s viewed as a high-level talent developer. More than 50 of his players have gone on to the pros and he’s produced four first-round picks since 2020. He’ll likely make that number five this summer with Chase Burns, who could be the first pitcher off the board. “Walter is considered to be a good person and is highly respected in the profession,” Tarpley said. “He’s made the postseason the past three years. It’s one of those situations where his reputation is better than his results due to the resources he has to work with.” See more candidates at GigEm247.
