The Lions were originally hoping to provide a detailed report of their investigation into Hiromoto "Dave" Okubo's coaching methods later today, but it seems as though the team needs a little more time to sift through all they data they managed to collect.

Club president Shinji Kobayashi told reporters yesterday that while he felt strongly about releasing information on the investigation in a timely manner, he also wanted a little more time.

So while the Lions are expected hold off on releasing information about their investigations today, they will probably make an announcement regarding Okubo's replacement.  According to Sponichi, Norio Tanabe seems the most likely of candidates to become the club's new Ni-gun batting coach.
