djL to join NIP coaching staff
The Swedish organization picked up the former Copenhagen Flames and GamerLegion tactician ahead of the 2022 season.
NIP's COO Jonas "calc" Gundersen confirmed that NIP will be adding Daniel "djL" Narancic to their coaching staff on Saturday. The short Twitter announcement came as a response to Dexerto's report linking the 27-year-old Swede to the Head Coach position.
"It's true that djL is joining our coaching staff," calc wrote, leaving the exact role of the coach vague. "Just wait for the announcement, and the full picture will be given - we are all still on player break."
NIP have been on the lookout for a Head Coach since Björn "THREAT" Pers transition to the role of Technical Director in December, with the team's COO standing behind the team to fill in the gap at the last event of 2021, the BLAST Premier World Final.
As a player, djL is know for his escapades in the Swedish sub-top, often playing alongside twins Joakim "Relaxa" Gustafsson and Fredrik "FREDDyFROG" Gustafsson in teams such as Japaleno, Red Reserve, and Chaos. He had an international foray with Epsilon in 2018, playing alongside Benjamin "blameF" Bremer, but slowly transitioned into coaching in 2019.
NIP are now:
