After some leaks and teasing, C9 has officially named Nick “LS” De Cesare as their head coach. He’ll take over Mithy to help 100 thieves. C9 has now completed its roster and head coach, with announcements expected for the rest of its staff shortly. Here’s the latest on the new head coach, the C9 LS.

For some, it will come as a big surprise while others may have expected it at this point. LS moving to C9 shows that the rumors that C9 have viewed him as their new coach in the past few weeks proved to be true in the end. This happened after quitting coaching for LCK games for a few years and then joining T1 as a streamer.

LS is from the US and his signing to C9 means he will be retiring. This won’t be the first time he has trained in North America. He had coached Gravity and Tempo Storm but moved to Korea to stream and cast.
Since his time in NA, Ls has made a name for himself through his counseling and deep dives on stream. He has helped players revitalize their careers or bring them more recognition by being associated with him. Some of these players include Fudge, Nemesis, and Crownshot, among others.
For C9, it will be interesting to see if this new direction pays off. LS certainly has the knowledge to be a good coach but he will be working with a confusing roster. With the move from Fudge to the middle and the additions from Summit, Berserker, and Winsome, LS will surely have its hands full adjusting to and customizing all of these new pieces.
