TuGuX joins BIG Academy as head coach
The former Space Soldiers in-game leader returns to CS:GO after a three-year break from competition following the disbandment of ex-DarkPassage, in which the 28-year-old played alongside the likes of Özgür "woxic" Eker and Muhammed "mini" Salman.
In BIG Academy, TuGuX will take over the head coach role from Fatih "gob b" Dayik, who will, however, continue to support the team in addition to his other responsibilities in the main lineup and the organization's management.
TuGuX enters the squad in the middle of their campaign in the domestic 99Liga's first division, in which BIG Academy will be hoping to improve their record as they currently sit in fifth place with a 5-5 record, just outside of the qualification zone for the finals.
"Very glad to be back in Germany and to see familiar faces again after such a long time and I am confident that I will help the guys to reach a better level through a well-thought-out system," TuGuX said in a statement.
"My previous experiences in other projects will definitely help to shape this super talented team into something BIGger. We already started to work and it is looking very promising indeed!"
