The Mets announced this afternoon that Bob Geren has been named the team's new bench coach.
Geren, 50, spent four season's as the Oakland A's manager before being let go last season.
In a press release, manager Terry Collins said, "Bob Geren’s experience as a former manager and bench coach will be a great fit for us. Adding a former major league catcher like Bob to our staff will be ideal."
According to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, the Mets are now in the process of searching for a new first base coach. So far, the team has interviewed Minor League infield coordinator Kevin Morgan and outfield coordinator Jack Voigt.
