North add Jumpy as Head Coach
Jumpy joins the Danish side to bring "new inspiration and a different coaching approach" after spending the last five months as a free agent, having been replaced by Andreas "Samuelsson" Samuelsson in fnatic last September following a three-year tenure with the Swedish squad.
Changes in the coaching staff are another step in a change of direction in North, who have been struggling to keep a place in the top 10 consistently for the past two years. In January, they benched Jakob "JUGi" Hansen to make space for the return of Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen.
"Although it has been a tough decision to let mithR go, we concluded, after a thorough analysis of the entire performance setup, that the team needs some new inspiration and different coaching approach to unlock the full potential of the players.
"We held talks with numerous highly qualified coaches, and we are very pleased to get Jumpy onboard as our number one choice. With his prior high-level experience and solid coaching philosophy, we see the signing of Jumpy as another important boost to our development towards the top,” North's performance coach, Christian Engell, said in a statement.
North now have:
