Japan men’s coach Yuichi Nakagaichi, who caused a serious traffic accident last year, will rejoin the national team as of June 8, the Japan Volleyball Association announced Wednesday.

The 49-year-old Nakagaichi was ordered by the Osaka Summary Court on Monday to pay a ¥700,000 settlement. In November on the Chugoku Expressway in Hiroshima Prefecture, Nakagaichi was at the wheel when his car struck a traffic guard.
