Yakult Swallows to offer Ni-gun coaching job to Masanori Matsui?

The Yakult Swallows appear to be leaning towards offering Masanori Matsui a job as Ni-gun developmental coach / dorm superintendent.  Matsui has experience as the Swallows' Ni-gun manager (1994) and Ichi-gun head coach (1995-1998) during Katsuya Nomura's 9-year run as manager of the Swallows in the 90's and is considered to be adept at handling young players.

Current dorm superintendent Kenichi Kajima will likely become Ni-gun general director.
