Debus on board as bullpen coach

The Mets will hire Jon Debus as bullpen coach, succeeding Randy Niemann in that role, according to an organization source.

Debus served as Terry Collins' coach with Orix in Japan. The men had a longstanding previous relationship with the Dodgers.

Debus served as the Dodgers' bullpen coach for one season, in 2005 under Jim Tracy.
