Kongdoo Monster coach quits to coach Overwatch team

Kongdoo Monsters coach Kim Mok-Gyum has quit his coaching position to go manage an Overwatch team, writes Fomos’ Choi Min-Sook.

e-mFire, the company managing the Kongdoo Monsters in League Challengers Korea, announced Friday that coach Kim has stepped away from his position due to “personal reasons.”

Coach Kim has been a coach for various Korean teams such as Jin Air and Longzhu Gaming before he joined the Korean challenger team, working with them until Kongdoo qualified for the regular season in the 2016 promotional tournament.

Kim is expected to manage Team Awesome for Overwatch, according to Fomos.

This news was preceded by the announcement that the head coach of Kongdoo, Chae Woo-Chul has moved to CJ Entus as a coach along with his old colleague from his days in Najin Kim, Dae-Woong, reported by Daily eSports’ Nam Yoon-Sung.

This move away from Kongdoo comes at an awkward time as they have just recently been added to the 2017 spring split of League Champions Korea.
