Misfits Gaming recently announced a change in their coaching staff following a four-game losing streak in the League of Legends European Championship.
Hussain Moosvi will return to the role of head coach for the remainder of the spring split while Jesse “Jesiz” Le will become the team’s player development coach for both the LEC team and its academy counterpart. The rest of the coaching staff, including assistant coach Lee “PoohManDu” Jeong-hyeon and performance coach Robert Yip, will remain in their respective roles.
Many fans expected Misfits Gaming to have standout performances after they originally announced their roster back in November. The team features two members from its 2018 rendition in Nubar “Maxlore” Sarafian and Steven “Hans Sama” Liv, who both had impressive performances last year. Additionally, Misfits welcomed former Fnatic top laner Paul “sOAZ” Boyer, mid laner Fabian “Febiven” Diepstraten, and support Kang “GorillA” Beom-hyeon.
Despite high expectations, the team currently stands at seventh place with a 4-6 record over the five-week period.
Misfits Gaming will try out its new coaching staff in hopes of finding better results when the team goes toe-to-toe with SK Gaming and Origen on Friday and Saturday, respectively, for Week 6 of the LEC.
