Tim Teufel gets added to 2012 Coaching Staff, As Four Coaches will not be back


The New York Mets said Wednesday that four coaches won't return next season.

Bench coach Ken Oberkfell, third base coach Chip Hale, first base coach Mookie Wilson and bullpen coach Jon Debus will not be back, while hitting coach Dave Hudgens and pitching coach Dan Warthen will return to manager Terry Collins' staff for 2012.

Former Mets infielder Tim Teufel, who was managing at Triple-A Buffalo, will be the new third base coach and Ricky Bones will step in as bullpen coach.

Last week, the Mets exercised the 2013 contract option for Collins after he guided the team to a 77-85 record in his first season at the helm.

The Mets have missed the playoffs each of the last five years.
