Fnatic announced Tuesday the addition of Dylan Falco as the team’s head coach.

Fnatic has hired the former Immortals and EnVyUs coach to lead the team into the summer split of the European League of Legends Championship Series.

“I’m excited to be working as head coach for Fnatic for the summer split,” Falco said in a statement. “After a very successful boot camp with the team in Korea, I’m confident that I’ll be able to bring structure, focus, and an efficient training environment to Fnatic moving into summer split and worlds.”

Falco was the online analyst for North America’s Team SoloMid for 14 months until his move to H2K Gaming in 2015. He began his coaching career with Immortals in 2016, where he worked with the team’s journey into the playoffs of both splits.

Falco coached EnVyUs in the most recent spring split of the North American LCS, where the team finished 10th in the regular season and fought to kept its spot in the LCS through the promotion tournament.

Fnatic’s previous manager and interim coach, Finlay ‘Quaye’ Stewart, has also shifted to become the organization’s director of League of Legends team operations, where he will control player contracts and potential future roster alterations.

Fnatis has struggled to find the right balance of coaches since Luis “Deilor” Sevilla left the organization in August. Nicholas “NicoThePico” Korsgaard was replaced in the middle of the spring split by Quaye, who coached the team to a third place finish in the spring split of the European LCS.
