Heyman | Terry Collins to resign as Mets manager

He will remain with the team in a front-office role. After posting a 90-72 regular-season record in 2015, the Mets then returned to the postseason in 2016 with an 87-75 mark.

The Mets GM would not comments on Collins future with the team. The Mets reached the World Series for just the fifth time in franchise history in 2015, and were defeated by the Giants in the Wild Card Game previous year at Citi Field.

The 68-year-old joined the team in 2011after the firing of Jerry Manuel and wasn't able to find much success.

Managing in NY will always be an attractive option because the market commands so much attention and Mets' ownership is capable of spending money to supplement the roster.

The Mets apparently value Collins' knowledge and input, so while they had no obligation to offer him a front office position for 2018, it's nice to see at least they'll have him stick around.

Collins has spent seven years the team's manager, and is the longest-tenured manager in franchise history.

With his contract expiring at the end of the 2017 season, Collins and his Mets had high expectations heading into the season as another playoff berth was expected.

"Got some things I got to take care of today and worry about it when the game's over", Collins said before the season finale against the Phillies.

Early candidates for the Mets managerial job next year are Bob Geren, Chip Hale, Kevin Long, Robin Ventura and Alex Cora, according to the New York Post's Mike Puma.
