Dignitas promotes Cop to head coach

Team Dignitas has switched head coaches.

Hours after David “Cop” Roberson announced on Twitter that he would be on stage for today’s North American League Championship Series match between Dignitas and FlyQuest as the head coach, Dignitas released a statement about the matter.

“Team Dignitas announces the appointment of David “Cop” Roberson as the head coach for its North American League of Legends team, with the goal of increasing communication and cohesiveness,” the statement read. “Cop will replace the team’s former coaches.”

Cop is a former professional League of Legends player on teams such as Team Curse and Team Gravity. Since his retirement he has coached for Team Gravity, Echo Fox, and Team Apex before the team was bought out by the Philadelphia 76ers and rebranded as Dignitas.

Dignitas was coached by Park Jae-seok — formerly of SBENU in Korea — and Kim Jeong-soo, who came from Samsung Galaxy, until this point.

Dignitas is currently in eighth place with a 2-6 record in the North American LCS.
