The Mets and manager Terry Collins have agreed to a two-year contract extension, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com confirmed. The deal will likely be announced on Monday.

Collins, 64, has been manager of the Mets since 2011. They are 224-260 under his watch, including 73-87 this season. They've won between 73-77 games in each of his three season. Collins' current contract was due to expire after this season.

The Mets have been in what amounts to transition period these last few years as the ownership dealt with financial problems. The club has the hefty contracts of Johan Santana and Jason Bay coming off the books this winter.

Before joining the Mets, Collins had previously managed the Astros (1994-96) and Angels (1997-99). He also spent time managing in Japan.
