TCU baseball coach Jim Schlossnagle's compensation has nearly tripled since the Horned Frogs began their run of College World Series appearances in 2014.

Schlossnagle, who has led TCU to five College World Series including the last four, earned $1,109,521 million in 2016, according to the university's most recent IRS Form 990 obtained by the Star-Telegram. That is up from from $402,087 he earned in 2013.

Schlossnagle's earnings in 2016 were just short of the contract that made Florida's Kevin O'Sullivan the highest-paid coach in the sport at the time. O'Sullivan received a contract extension worth $1.25 million per year.

Football coach Gary Patterson remained the university's highest-paid employee. He earned $4.76 million in 2016, $1.4 million more than university chancellor Victor Boschini. His pay would rank 11th on USA Today's 2017 football coaches salary database. In November, he agreed to a six-year extension through the 2023 season.

Offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie received $963,416, a year after he was offered the offensive coordinator job at Texas under then-head coach Charlie Strong.

Basketball coach Jamie Dixon earned a base salary of $2,329,990. TCU also paid $1.5 million to Pittsburgh to buy out Dixon's contract.

Last week, TCU announced that it had extended Dixon's contract by another two years through the 2023-24 season.

Former head basketball coach Trent Johnson will also receive payments for another three years under the terms of his buyout. In 2016 he received $1.7 million and $67,671 for payment as a temporary employee. In addition, he was to receive $2.45 million in 2017 and $625,000 in 2018.
