A Worlds-winning top laner is making his return to professional League as Team Liquid’s new head coach for 2023

After failing to capture a single trophy this year, Team Liquid has torn down a majority of its League of Legends division to make room for sweeping changes across its roster and coaching. The team is kicking off free agency by bringing on one-time Summoner’s Cup winner Jang “MaRin” Gyeong-hwan as the squad’s new head coach, Liquid announced today.

The 31-year-old veten will be making his coaching debut with the organization after retiring from competitive play back in 2018. “I want to become the hardest working coach to create the best team,” MaRin said on social media. “I will give my all for the team, the organization, and the fans.”
