The Mets, whose coaching staff situation remains in flux as they continue their search for a new manager, have interest in 'rising star' Chris Fetter to be on their staff, reports Jeff Passan of ESPN.
Fetter, 33, has been the assistant coach/pitchers for the University of Michigan since 2018.
According to Passan, the Yankees -- who fired pitching coach Larry Rothschild on Monday -- have interviewed Fetter for their vacant pitching coach position.
Prior to joining Michigan, Fetter served as the pitching coach for Ball State, was a major league scout for the Angels (2013-2015), and assistant pitching coach for the Double-A San Antonio Missions (2013).
A former college pitcher, Fetter was an All-American for Michigan during his pitching career and was a three-time All-Big Ten selection. He is first in Wolverines history with 332.1 innings pitched.
After graduating from Michigan in 2009, Fetter was selected by the Padres in the ninth round of the 2009 MLB Draft. He spent four seasons in the minors -- posting a 3.56 ERA -- before beginning his coaching/scouting career.
