Terry Collins is taking on a new role with the Mets, but don't expect to see him in the dugout any time soon.
Collins, who has served as a special assistant to the GM since retiring from coaching in 2017, will be back with the team as a senior advisor for player personnel, first reported by Joel Sherman of the New York Post and confirmed by SNY Insider Andy Martino.
Collins, of course, managed the Mets for seven seasons from 2011-17. He coached the team to an overall record of 551-583, and just two of his seven seasons produced winning records.
His time as the Mets' skipper is most remembered for the 2015 season, when the Mets won 90 games and made their first World Series appearance since 200 before falling to the Royals in the Fall Classic.
The Mets have made a number of moves within the team's front office as of late. Bryn Anderson, son of Sandy Alderson, was named the team's director of pro scouting, while former director Jim D'Aloia, special assistant to the general manager Ruben Amaro Jr., and a number of scouts were all let go.
