After a trade from the Dodger organization, Teed finished 1960 as a player/coach for the Williamsport Grays under Frank Lucchesi. From 1961 to 1963, he followed Lucchesi as player/coach with the Chattanooga Lookouts, Williamsport again, and the Arkansas Travelers. He managed in the Philadelphia Phillies system from 1964 to 1967. Teed then was a scout for the Phillies from 1968 to 1977, then for the Los Angeles Dodgers starting in 1978. Among others, he recommended the signing of John Franco.

His grandson, Bryan Barnowski, played in the minors from 1999-2003.
