Chukyo-dai Chukyo manager Toshiyuki Ofuji will be stepping down as manager of the team after the summer.  Ofuji became manager of the team in 1990 at the age of 28; he also won the Summer Koshien last year.

Genichiro Takahashi (高橋源一郎), currently a coach with the team, will likely take over as the new manager.

According to Nikkan Sports, it seems school officials wanted a new face and felt the end of the summer would be the best time for a change.
