The Afreeca Freecs’ head coach Kang Hyun-jong has left the team.
Afreeca announced on its official Facebook that the head coach’s contract had come to an end, and they will part ways under amicable conditions. Head coach Kang later said in an interview with OSEN’s Ko Yong-jun that he was “thankful for all the love from the fans” and being able to “meet great players at Afreeca.” He also added that he is “prepared to do his best wherever (he) might be needed.”
Kang has been part of Afreeca since rebranding from Team Anarchy Rebels last December. Since then, he not only put the Freecs in the post seasons of both spring and summer, but he also made a name for himself as the head coach with the most amount of wins against three time world champion SK Telecom T1.
