Wally Backman will return as manager of the Las Vegas 51s, New York's Triple-A affiliate, the team announced.
Frank Viola will again serve as Backman's pitching coach, with Jack Voigt returning as hitting coach.
"I'm excited to return to Las Vegas for my fourth season," Backman said. "I enjoy working with everyone in the 51s front office and look forward to another successful season in the Pacific Coast League. We have the potential to field another exciting team for the fans to watch and enjoy."
Backman, 56, is entering his fourth season in Las Vegas, where he was 77-67 last season. He was named the Pacific Coast League's Manager of the Year last in 2014.
In his 13-year minor-league career, Backman is 840-757 (.525) with the Mets, White Sox and D-Backs organizations.
He has repeatedly told reporters that, while he's thankful to be managing at Triple-A, he still hopes to eventually become a big-league manager.
