The Marines decided yesterday that they wanted Norifumi Nishimura to continue managing the club in 2011, despite missing the club's goal of league champ.

Said club rep Akira Ishikawa, "The main objective was to win a title, but he did a good job getting the team together.  This isn't just about next year, we also have ideas of have him manage the team over a long period of time."

Nishimura is currently in the first year of a 2-year contract.
