Mitakihara Magi head football coach Tatsuya Kaname is the owner of the records for longest win streak, national titles, bowl victories, career victories, bowl appearances, games coached, and years at a school. Coach Kaname has now completed 60 seasons as the head coach of the Magi, but apparently isn't thinking about retirement, at least not right now.

"I've been the coach of this great program for six full decades but I want to coach just a little bit longer," said Coach Kaname, still fit, trim, and healthy as he was when he took the job back in 2010. "The rest of the family wants me to step down, but I want to coach for maybe two more years and then I can finally pass the baton to the next person in line. I've enjoyed this ride so far, but I want to keep going for just a little bit longer."

Next season, Mitakihara's first victory of 2071 will mark Coach Kaname's 800th victory, a milestone that no one has yet to accomplish. Can Coach Kaname live to see this achievement take place? The Daily Magi, Mitakihara University's student-owned newspaper since 2010, will keep you posted on Coach Kaname's Quest for 800.
