Is this the ratcheting style caliper? If so, you really should be using the proper tool to turn these style calipers back into their bore, and both calipers should turn clockwise to retract them back in. Also, if the piston was too far out you may have a hard time getting it to go back in. Hope this helps.

FIRST adjust rear brake starwheel while spinning tire FOWARD. then alongside drivers side of car find emergency brake cable adjustment (long threaded rod with nut) . hold one end of rod with vise-grips and turn nut until emer. brake cable has less slack in it. now go inside car and apply e-brake.you dont want the pedal to stop right away but u also dont want too much"travel" in the pedal.so about halfway is IDEAL. IMPORTANT- once the brake cable is adjusted and the car wont roll foward in gear with the brake on and applying a little "gas"-make sure with brake OFF that rear wheels turn freely. hope this helps.

SOURCE: how to reset brake caliper
The pistons in all calipers I have seen can be forced back into their seat to allow new brake pads to clear. If constructed as most, a C-clamp can be used to press the cylinder back in.
