Nikkan Sports is reporting that Akinobu Okada may not be returning to the Orix Buffaloes as manager next season.

Nothing has been decided yet, but it seems this may be Okada's last year at the helm.

Sanspo lists Ni-gun manager Hiromasa Arai and former Nippon Ham manager Masataka Nashida as possible candidates.

Okada is in the final year of a three-year deal.
