Mitakihara Magi football head coach Tatsuya Kaname was given a new four-year contract worth $20 million CAN, according to Mitakihara University Athletics. Outgoing athletic director, Sayaka Miki, who will retire from her post following the 2027-28 academic year to focus on her new role as a financial consultant, was pleased with the progress of one of her original hires, and the most successful by far.

"You all know how important Tatsuya is to the success of Mitakihara Magi football," Miki said at a press conference at Hakurei Centre. "When he goes, so does Magi football. We have had nothing but success, success, and success with Tatsuya at the helm and we would like for it to go on.

"This is a great day to be part of the Mitakihara family, and with Tatsuya back with us, we hope to see new heroes emerge from Mitakihara Stadium, the best place in North America to watch a football game."

"Yeah, it's been quite a career here, hasn't it?" said Kaname, looking around at the hundreds of media invited to the press conference. "I love coaching this team. I love developing these players into the leaders that they can become off the field. Over the course of my tenure here, we have seen over 150 players make it in the NFL, CFL and elsewhere. Two of my original players are now on my coaching staff.

"I think I'm getting a bit old, what do you think?" he said to the press, who had a good laugh. "At the same time, I still feel like I'm still playing the game, but I'm doing it from a coaching standpoint. This will be my 18th season coaching this team, and there won't be any surprises as to what you all can expect, so I promise you that this year's Magi football team will be ready to play this August."

The schedule for the Magi football is currently being worked on, but the season will start with the fifth edition of the Sakura Bowl, held at Chichibunomiya Rugby Stadium in Tokyo, Japan against a team to be determined.
