The Nippon Ham Fighters are planning on offering Hiroshi Shibakusa an Ichi-gun pitching coach job.  It seems there's also a plan to promote Ni-gun pitching coach Masato Yoshii back to Ichi-gun and demote Ichi-gun chief pitching coach Takeshi Shimazaki to Ni-gun and reassign Ichi-gun pitching coach Kazuyuki Atsuzawa.

In addition to the above moves, it seems Ni-gun batting coach Yukio Tanaka could swap places with Ichi-gun batting coach Iwao Omura.
