After a year and some change without a coach, TYLOO has officially signed Ivan “Johnta” Shevcov to fill the position. The Chinese organization made the announcement on Weibo.
Johnta previously coached HellRaisers, giving two years to the organization and players before his run ended in late 2018.
Luis “peacemaker” Tadeu was the last to serve as a coach to the squad, parting ways with the organization in November 2017.
Hansel “BnTeT” Ferdinand mentioned in a previous interview with HLTV that the team needed a coach as their mental game could use some work following an exit from the PLG Grand Slam.
This is part of larger changes taking place in the CS:GO division of TYLOO as YuanZhang “AttackeR” Sheng and YuLun “Summer” Cai have joined the roster on loan from Flash. Making room for the two latest additions, Ke “captainMo” Liu and Hui “DD” Wu are no longer members of the starting roster.
The new team will head to Munich for a boot camp kicking off January 20 in order to get some time in prior to the IEM Katowice Major. TYLOO will be participating in the Major’s New Challengers Stage which will begin on February 14.
