Japan’s Rio Olympic head coach Makoto Teguramori said Thursday he is set for a return to a coaching role with the national team under head coach Vahid Halilhodzic.

Teguramori, 48, has doubled as a national team coach after the 2014 World Cup as well as the head coach for the Olympic team. He began working entirely for the Under-23 side last October, but couldn’t guide his side past the group stage in Brazil.
