"...We are thrilled to welcome Coach Park as the new Head Coach of EG-Liquid, and we are very excited to work with him going forward in the second half of the 2012-2013 Proleague season. Beginning March 12th (next week), EG-TL’s players will officially be under his leadership.
“I’ve wanted to join a foreign team for a very long time now, so it feels like I have finally met my dream. It’s very exciting to work with both Korean players and foreign players,” said Coach Park.
This does not mean, in any way, that the members of our current coaching staff will be replaced. We think that Sung Hwan “Hwanni” Kim and Sung Jin “trOt” Park did the best they could, given the situation they were put in, but in retrospect it was unrealistic to expect Sung Jin, who was coaching in a non-assistant role for the first time, and Hwanni, who was simultaneously fulfilling the roles of the team’s Head Coach and Operations Manager, to keep EG-Liquid at the same level as KeSPA teams with years and years of experience. Going forward, Sung Jin will work directly under Head Coach Park as his Assistant Coach, and Hwanni will focus strictly on our Korean Operations. We are also considering improving the depth and versatility of our Proleague lineup by adding more players to the roster, but no such additions have been finalized as of yet..."
I'm excited, as well.
