Mets manager Terry Collins gets two-year contract extension
Winning the National League comes with some job security for Mets manager Terry Collins, as Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports that he’s agreed to a two-year contract extension.
Collins’ previous contract had a team option for 2016, but this new deal replaces that--covering 2016 and 2017, with guaranteed money--and according to Ackert comes “with an increase in salary.”
Collins had a losing record in each of his first four seasons as Mets manager, but the team went 90-72 this year and advanced to the World Series before falling to the Royals in five games. Along with his previous Astros and Angels stints, Collins has a career 838-850 (.496) record in 11 total seasons as a manager.
