Today, Fnatic has announced that Deilor will be stepping down as head coach of Fnatic effective immediately.
Deilor was easily one of the best coaches in the EU LCS and kept Fnatic at the top during his two years as head coach. According to their statement rebuilding the team has been quite the struggle and he along with management agreed that a split would be the best course of action going forward.
This change also comes at presumably a bad time as the team is currently training to take on H2K for a spot in the EU LCS semis. Taking his place will be former Origen coach Nico, Nico the Pico, Korsgård. Korsgård has been working closely with the team the past few weeks and Fnatic feel that they at least won’t lose a beat heading into the matchup against Prolly and his H2k squad.
According to the man himself, Deilor will not pursue coaching anymore because he believe that eSports is still in it’s “infancy.” To help make it better he plans to focus on the business and development side of things. As for why he’s leaving specifically? He didn’t say other than there were things on the team he couldn’t fix and as a coach he felt that was unacceptable.
