Team Liquid have hired former Riot Games analyst and commentator Joshua 'Jatt' Leesman as their new head coach for the League of Legends Championship Series, the team announced Monday. Rar viewer online.
The change comes after Liquid placed ninth in the League Championship Series spring split. Following that finish, the team moved then-head coach Jang 'Cain' Nu-ri to a strategic coaching role and traded veteran AD carry Yiliang 'Doublelift' Peng to Team SoloMid. In Doublelift's place, the team promoted former Academy AD carry Edward 'Tactical' Ra to the full-time starter position on the LCS team.
'One thing watching the 'Squad' episode at the end of the spring split, it was clear that all the players in Team Liquid felt like they lacked an identity,' Jatt said in a video released on Team Liquid's Twitter account announcing the news. 'I'm not going to be the type of coach that comes in and says, 'This is our identity. This is how we're going to play.' I'm hoping that I'm able to gather all of the information from the players and the coaches and help align everyone towards the same goal. That's how we'll find an identity that everyone is able to buy into.'
