Ventforet Kofu manager Hiroshi Jofuku will step down at the end of the J. League season.

Jofuku had been asked by 13th-place Kofu to return for a fourth season in 2015, but according to several sources on Monday, turned down the offer. A formal announcement is expected to be made in the coming days; a replacement for the ex-FC Tokyo coach has yet to be chosen.
