Bay Stars to offer Tomohiro Kuroki Ichi-gun pitching coach job?

With current Ichi-gun pitching coach Hiroki Nomura leaving the Bay Stars, it seems the club will be offering the open position to Tomohiro Kuroki.  Yokohama is also planning on promoting Ni-gun pitching coach Atsushi Yoshida to Ichi-gun bullpen coach.

This would be Kuroki's first coaching job since retiring in 2007.  Kuroki spent his entire career with Lotte (1995-2007) and knows Takao Obana from his days as a pitching coach for the Marines (1995 - 1996).
