The Orix Bufaloes are not planing to extend their senior adviser contract with former manager Hiroshi Moriwaki. An official announcement will be made next month in October.
Moriwaki took over as interim manager of the Buffaloes at the tail end of the 2012 season and was promoted to manager for the 2013 season. He stepped down as manager last year after a slow start and was given a new role as senior adviser.
