Bora “YellOwStaR” Kim will join LDLC as the team’s new League of Legends coach, the organization announced Friday.

“Following my return to France, I am pleased to announce that I have joined LDLC as a member of the League of Legends team, specifically as the head coach,” YellOwStaR said in a news release. “As such, my overall mission will be to help the structure and the team to develop (in) the game. I hope to be able to use the experience gained until now in competition to support this team that is still very young on the European scene.”

The signing comes a little more than a week after YellOwStaR parted ways with Paris Saint-Germain as the organization withdrew from professional League of Legends. Previously a member of Fnatic’s League of Legends team, YellOwStaR retired as a player to become the head of esports for PSG last year.

LDLC fell just short of qualifying for the European Challenger Series this summer.

“I am pleased with the arrival of Bora in Team LDLC,” director of esports Anthony “Marty” RABBY said in the release. “For the season 2018, our ambition was to develop our presence on the League of Legends scene and so, to become with, to reinforce the staff already in place. Recognized for his talents and his involvement, the integration of Bora into the team already in place at Team LDLC finds nowadays all its meaning. Despite a somewhat difficult year at PSG, I trust him to succeed along us.”
