Immortals have announced they have signed Sang-soo “Ssong” Kim as their new head coach for the 2017 NA LCS Summer Split. Ssong has previously head coached for the ROX Tigers and Longzhu Gaming.
Ssong said in a press release..
“When I had my initial conversation with Immortals’ management, I felt very good about the team after the conversation. The players are very hardworking and passionate about the game. They are very open towards criticism and they want to improve every day. Also the coaching staff and the players provide very positive environment to work with. I am excited to show the improvement that we will have as a team.”
Immortals CEO Noah Whinston also stated..
“Ssong is well-respected in Korea for his competence and ability to manage both player relationships and in-game strategy. We’re excited to work with him not only on turning IMT’s roster into a contender in the short term, but also on developing our promising rookies for future splits.”
It is unclear if Robert Yip, Immortal’s previous head coach, will be staying with the organization.
