(AP) Terry Collins has completed his contract extension with the New York Mets to remain the team's manager.


The club announced the move Monday, one day after finishing 74-88 in its fifth consecutive losing season since moving into Citi Field. Collins' contract was set to expire after the season, his third in charge of the Mets, but it became increasingly clear late in the year that he likely would return.


His deal is for 2-year extension that gives the Mets an option for 2016.


The 64-year-old Collins is 225-261 as manager of the rebuilding Mets. Fielding an inexperienced lineup depleted by injuries and trades, he kept New York competitive down the stretch without most of his top players.


Collins' entire coaching staff will also be back for next season.
