It seems that Yokohama Bay Stars scouting director Tetsuji Okamoto will be returning as Ichi-gun general coach next season.  Okamoto became the team's Ichi-gun general coach last year in June, but was later reassigned to his position in the front office.  The Bay Stars hope Okamoto can use some of his experience as a Ni-gun manager from his days with the Nippon Ham Fighters to help support Takao Obana next year.

Yokohama is also expected to offer Kazuyuki Shirai the Ni-gun manager position, as well as reassign Shigeru Sugimura to a roving coach.
