Liquid bring in moses as new Head Coach
The former professional player turned analyst and commentator, most known for his pairing with Anders "Anders" Blume in recent years, has decided to leave talent work to take on the new role of a head coach.
His addition to Liquid comes just a few days after the official announcement of the signing of a new player, Michael "Grim" Wince, who stepped into the shoes of the North American team's long-time in-game leader and AWPer, Nick "nitr0" Cannella.
moses is effectively replacing Eric "adreN" Hoag, who leaves Liquid following a tenure dating back to late-2018, when he joined the North American side alongside Jake "Stewie2K" Yip after the team lost Wilton "zews" Prado and Epitacio "TACO" de Melo to MIBR.
With adreN standing behind the team, Liquid reached new heights in 2019, becoming the No.1 team in the world and maintaining that spot for over three months in June to September as they won six consecutive Big Events and smashed the second season of Intel Grand Slam within 63 days.
However, a Major title is still missing on the team's resumé, which is the main box the team will hope to tick off with the new coach after they went out in the quarter-finals of IEM Katowice and StarLadder Major in 2019. "If me coming in as a coach with this team doesn't yield a Major trophy, then this has been a failure. That's the goal," moses said in the announcement video.
Liquid now have:
Jason "moses" O'Toole (coach)
