The generation of a superposition state of a single-mode or two-mode coherent state is always an attractive topic. We propose schemes to generate the Schrödinger cat state and entangled coherent state of a mechanical oscillator in a hybrid optomechanical system. By introducing time-dependent coupling between the atom and photon, an effective Hamiltonian is deduced, where a tripartite interaction with time-dependent coupling is achieved. The effect of relatively high free energy can be cancelled so that we can obtain a relatively large average phonon number. Including dissipation, we derive an analytic solution of the system and further discuss the decoherence and disentanglement. In addition, a steady phonon laser can be reached.
