Tom Wisman, who guided the Tochigi Brex to the inaugural B. League title in May 2017, is returning to the sideline to lead the Yokohama B-Corsairs.

As expected, the team made a formal announcement earlier this week, setting the stage for Wisman's latest reclamation project. He served as team adviser for the B-Corsairs from late November until the end of this season. Terms of the contract were undisclosed, but Wisman said he's looking to make it a long-term deal.

In a phone conversation Thursday morning, Wisman said building better team chemistry is a key objective.
