Mere hours after of his announcing of his retirement, Yeo “TrAce” Chang-dong will be starting as a coach.
Samsung made the announcement on Facebook on Friday, that TrAce will be added to Samsung’s coaching staff. The post asked the fans to cheer him and encourage his new career.
Previously the top laner to the Jin Air Green Wings, TrAce made a name for himself inventive and unexpected picks in the top lane, also called the ‘Edison of LoL’ in Korea. Also one of the oldest at age 27, he still managed to stand up to younger talent on other teams.
TrAce did mention previously in his retirement post that he will be able to meet the fans in a different position, perhaps hinting of the appointment.
