Mets legend David Wright had already made it known that managing wasn't on his mind after ending his playing career following the 2018 season.
And that is still the case today.
MLB Network's Jon Heyman did his due diligence on the matter with the Mets currently looking for a new manager after mutually parting ways with Carlos Beltran. Wright's answer is just the one you'd expect.
I inquired of David Wright if he'd consider the Mets manager job. His response: "Happy New Year Jon. Correct, I am not interested in coaching. Full transparency I did accept a position as a coach on my daughter's 3/4 year old coed tee ball team this spring."- Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) January 20, 2020
Wright served as a special advisor to the Mets last season, and held a large role in helping GM Brodie Van Wagenen pick Beltran as the team's next manager during their initial search. Being teammates from 2005-11, Wright knew exactly what type of person the Mets were getting in Beltran, calling him "probably one of the smartest baseball men that I have been around."
It is unknown how involved he is now, but we definitely know for a fact that Wright's name has not been thrown in the ring. Instead, Wright will continue to offer his advice to the team whenever it calls.
