The Orix Buffaloes announced that chief coach Shinya Kobayashi, pitching coach Eiji Kiyokawa, OF / base-running coach Osamu Yonemura, and battery coach Kosuke Yoshihara will be stepping down from their current coaching positions and will either be re-assigned positions as Ni-gun coaches or will join the front office.

Sports Hochi has a different report that says the Buffaloes will not be extending contracts to Kobayashi and Yoshihara for the 2011 season.
