Evil Geniuses’ Coaching Staff Update for 2022
Evil Geniuses made the decision to promote former Head Coach Peter Dun to the position of Head of League of Legends Coaching Staff across all levels of competitive League of Legends. Joining the organization in the 2020 offseason, his game knowledge as well as the incredible year of growth and development in 2021, EG impressed the organization, putting him in charge of the whole coaching staff.
“We have been nothing but impressed with Peter since his addition to our staff last season. With this new and exciting expansion of our coaching staff, we’re thrilled to be moving Peter into a position to have stronger oversight into Academy and Amateur. His primary focus and duties will remain at the LCS level, but we’re also ensuring that other members of our coaching staff have the opportunity and room to grow and develop under the guidance of Peter’s leadership.” – is what Evil Geniuses General Manager, Andrew Barton, said in the org’s official statement.
Turtle will become EG’s Head Coach
With Peter Dun becoming the Head of Coaching Staff, Turtle will be taking his place in the head coach position in the North American League Championship Series. This marks an impressive record, as he becomes the first-ever Brazilian to take the reins as a head coach. Previously on Vivo Keyd in Brazil’s CBLOL before joining EG, Turtle impressed the team with his contributions as Assistant Coach.
“Since joining our coaching staff, Gabriel has done a fantastic job. Not only does he have an excellent approach to the game and leadership, his work ethic is second to none. He is consistently the first person in office and always amongst the last to leave. In addition to his contributions with the LCS team, he has a lot of respect from staff and players across all levels of the organization through his work with both EGA and EGP. I am confident that Turtle has all the qualities and experience required to do an excellent job coaching our LCS team in 2022.” is what Peter Dun claimed for his future successor.
