Moriwaki to return as Hawks’ head coach in 2011?

It seems the Softbank Hawks are thinking about bringing Hiroshi Moriwaki back as head coach in 2011.

Moriwaki was let go by the team during the 2010 off-season and then made a return to the club as a scouting advisor in January.  Nothing is set in stone as of yet, but Moriwaki may be on his way back to a coaching position (if not head coach, then a high level coaching job at Ni-gun is also a possibility).

The Hawks apparently like the experience Moriwaki gained during his year as advisor (like the time he spent traveling to the US to scout players).
