The Chiba Lotte Marines appear to be set to announce Norifumi Nishimura as the team's new manager some time today.  They will also likely announce Takashi Nishimoto as the team's new pitching coach and Eiji Kanamori as the team's new batting coach.

The Marines were also hoping to sign Junichi Fukura (currently the Fighters head coach) to be their new head coach, but gave up when Masataka Nashida got an extension to continue managing for the Fighters.
