“I’m extremely excited to work with an organization as revered as CLG, and can’t wait to get out to the team house and start putting in the work with the team,” Ryu said in a statement. “I’m both humbled and grateful for this opportunity and hope to make the fans proud.”
Ryu co-owned Selfless Gaming until a July 7 announcement that he and co-owner Bradford Rajani were leaving the organization to pursue other opportunities, and the organization was up for sale. Rajani has since become head coach for NRG’s Overwatch League team.
“Ryu brings a wealth of professionalism, experience, and leadership to CLG,” Matt “Trinitiii” Nausha, CLG’s head of esports, said in a statement. “He possesses many of the personality traits that I look for in a coach, and I believe he aligns very well with CLG’s core values from our conversations. We are excited for what he has to offer and the impact he will have on the team. I look forward to working with Ryu, and I am excited for this new chapter.”
CLG’s roster consists of Stephen “reltuc” Cutler, Kenneth “Koosta” Suen, Ethan “nathE” Arnold, Pujan “FNS” Mehta and Ricky “Rickeh” Mulholland.
