The Mets plan to keep Phil Regan as the team's pitching coach for at least the rest of the season, SNY's Andy Martino has learned. There will be no interviews or search for a replacement.
Regan, 82, was named the interim pitching coach on Thursday after the team fired Dave Eiland, along with bullpen coach Chuck Hernandez.
He had been working in the Mets farm system as a roving pitching coach, concentrating on the lower levels of the minor leauges.
Regan, who played 13 years in the majors, has been a collegiate or professional coach since 1973 and was even the Orioles' manager in 1995.
