CLG sign Ryu as coach

Counter Logic Gaming have announced the addition of Steve "Ryu" Rattacasa as their CS:GO Head Coach.

The North American squad had been without a coach since June, when Chet "ImAPet" parted ways with the team before eventually joining OpTic.

After nearly two months of search, CLG have now revealed Steve "Ryu" Rattacasa, the former Selfless coach, as the man with the task of guiding the team.

Ryu is set to start a new coaching experience

According to the official announcement, the new Head Coach is looking forward to "start putting in the work with the team".

"I'm extremely excited to work with an organization as revered as CLG, and can’t wait to get out to the team house and start putting in the work with the team," he told CLG's website.

"I’m both humbled and grateful for this opportunity and hope to make the fans proud."

As for Matt "Trinitiii" Nausha, the CLG Director of Esports said that Ryu "brings a wealth of professionalism, experience, and leadership" to the roster.

"He possess many of the personality traits that I look for in a coach and I believe he aligns very well with CLG's core values from our conversations," Nausha added.

"We are excited for what he has to offer and the impact he will have on the team. I look forward to working with Ryu and I am excited for this new chapter."

With this move, here is how the CLG roster stands:

United States Stephen "reltuC" Cutler
United States Kenneth "koosta" Suen
United States Ethan "Ethan" Arnold
Canada Pujan "FNS" Mehta
Australia Ricardo "Rickeh" Mulholland

Ryu means the return of NME-Koosta!! Now just need to cut reltuC for someone with a pulse and CLG will be in good position.
