FURIA add tacitus as assistant coach

The 21-year-old will help Nicholas "⁠guerri⁠" Nogueira as part of the Brazilian team's technical staff.

FURIA have announced the signing of Marcos "⁠tacitus⁠" Castilho as the team's assistant coach, tasking the 21-year-old with aiding head coach guerri in the tactical department.

Before his move to FURIA, the Brazilian coach had previously worked for a year in Triumph, starting as an analyst and moving up to the head coach position, a post he resigned in April.

During his time with the North American squad he coached the team through several ESEA Premier seasons, an ESL Pro League, and at tournaments such as ESL One Cologne North America or the team's second-place finish at IEM Beijing-Haidian 2020 North America.

tacitus' goal is to improve the team's tactical standard

tacitus now joins his countrymen in the top-ranked Brazilian squad, FURIA, who currently sit in seventh place in the standings as they try to hit their stride with AWPer Paytyn "⁠junior⁠" Johnson — who played under tacitus in Triumph — and seek to reenter the top five positions in the world.

"My role at FURIA is going to be to work beside Guerri, the current head coach, as I’m going to be his assistant," tacitus said in his presentation video. "In general, I’ll try to aggregate the most that I can and improve the tactical standard of the team.

"Being in FURIA means everything to me. It’s currently the best Brazilian CS team and one of the biggest organizations, so being able to represent a mantle with such weight is a big dream and I’ll give my best at every moment. "

FURIA are now:

Brazil Andrei "⁠arT⁠" Piovezan
Brazil Yuri "⁠yuurih⁠" Santos
Brazil Kaike "⁠KSCERATO⁠" Cerato
Brazil Vinicius "⁠VINI⁠" Figueiredo
United States Paytyn "⁠junior⁠" Johnson

Brazil Nicholas "⁠guerri⁠" Nogueira (coach)
Brazil Marcos "⁠tacitus⁠" Castilho (assistant coach)

Brazil Lucas "⁠honda⁠" Cano (substitute)

i have seen you in many different topics talking about FURIA and i tought that u watch the games, just like me. You know that Junior misses a lot of easy shots and its always the last in the table. If he made some impact kills, i would even say that he is good, but he doesn't. 6 months is enough and IMO i see him very sad during the games, while the others are all having fun and smilling, he doesn't show any emotion or expression.

The joke with their goal being to make arT survive more than 20 secounds of the round made me laugh tbh. But I think that move really makes sense, tacitus was a coach of junior when he was at his best, so maybe he will make him perform better, good move from FURIA, GL.
