Terry Collins signs two-year extension with Mets

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Collins and his coaching staff will return to lead the team in 2014.

New York Mets manager Terry Collins signed a two-year extension with the club with a club option for 2016, the team announced Monday. Collins' entire coaching staff will return as well.

Collins will enter his fourth season with the Mets after going 225-261 with the team in his first three years. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson noted that they played over .500 baseball during the final 100 games, telling Anthony DiComo of MLB.com that the record came "in spite of significant losses of player time to injury."

New York endured major injuries to David Wright, Matt Harvey, Johan Santana and Jon Niese during the year. Collins is ready to put 2013 behind him and focus on next season, telling DiComo:

"We did not perform up to what our expectations were, but we're very, very excited about 2014. We saw some bright things that happened this year with some of our young players. Obviously, we've got some outstanding young pitching coming. As I've said many times in this room, this game is about pitching and we think that's going to lead us. It's going to be fun for many of us in 2014."

The 64-year-old managed the Houston Astros from 1994-1996 and the Anaheim Angels from 1997-199 before taking over the Mets manager position in 2011.
