Esports Asia News
[hkes_show_google_ad] Though Counter Logic Gaming’s sister team, CLG Black, were unable to qualify for the 2017 NA Spring Challenger Series, the organization will continue to support its roster as they announced the signing of head coach Sami “Rico” Harbi as well as the acquisition of a team house in Los Angeles. Rico previously served as Fnatic’s team manager in 2013, the same year the roster fought its way to the semifinals of the 2013 World Championship. He also coached the previous incarnation of Team Dignitas at the tail-end of the 2015 NA LCS spring split. “I am very excited for Rico to join CLG! He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience that will be invaluable for our players,” CLG esports director Matt “Trinitiii” Nausha said in a statement. “Most importantly, he is eager to help each player grow. We are privileged to have Rico join CLG and excited to see his impact on the team.” Rico will be joining his players in a team house near CLG’s other teams, where they will all be sharing a chef and a physical therapist. “It’s a great honor to have been appointed by CLG as the Head Coach of CLG Black, taking upon the task that is to groom challenger players into LCS caliber players,” Rico said in a statement. “This is a testament that CLG is legitimately interested in developing NA talent. My first contacts with the players and staff have been really good, and I can’t wait to work closely with those five individuals to mold them into players and a team that fits CLG’s high standards.” [hkes_show_google_ad]
