Terry Collins Says Entire Coaching Staff Will Be Back

Terry Collins said his entire coaching staff will return for the 2013 season, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.

Terry Collins’ entire staff will return for next season, the manager announced before Monday’s series opener against the Marlins.

Pitching coach Dan Warthen is the longest-tenured member of the staff, having ascended from Triple-A when Willie Randolph as well as Rick Peterson were axed in the 3 a.m. ET firing back in 2008. Hitting coach Dave Hudgens is completing his second season. Bench coach Bob Geren, third base coach Tim Teufel, first base coach Tom Goodwin and bullpen coach Ricky Bones all were in their first year on the staff.

This was widely expected as two high ranking Mets officials told Mike Puma of the New York Post that no changes were expected and that an official announcement could come Monday.
