He continued playing but at the AAA level for 4 more seasons (1974-1977). Monzon managed in the New York Mets chain from 1978 to 1982. He scouted for the Mets from 1983 until 1986. He was then a scouting supervisor and national cross checker for the Chicago White Sox (1987-?) and Chicago Cubs (?-1994). Monzon died in an automobile accident at age 49.
