Meet the Coaches:

 

 

 

Head Coach KC and TSM analyst Parth took to reddit to discuss working together and the future of the team:

 

KC, aka Woodbuck, here. I am the new head coach for TSM this year. Hopefully you give me a small break for my first time on camera, it was not very natural for me.

This year, I will be working with my strategic coach, Jarge, to help the team reach their personal and team oriented goals. Jarge will focus on their performance in game by helping the players understand the fundamental strategy of the game, adjust to metas, pick/ban, etc. You all should be extremely hyped by how ridiculously talented he is in this regard. Since this is an extremely time consuming task, I will take responsibility for everything else, so he can remain focused.

My role as the head coach will be to create a culture and structure within the team that promotes a strong work ethic, a resilient team bond, and a sense of responsibility to do everything the right way — the TSM way. I have laid out my expectations to the players and I will ensure they follow through. I am telling everyone right now, I will not accept anything but their best effort and I will not allow the culture of this team to breakdown. This will be the most unified and disciplined team in NA.

Jarge and I are 100% committed to working our asses off this year and we will set the example for the players to follow. A lot is going to change in the TSM house/office, and I hope everyone is ready to come along for the ride.

 

Hey guys, Parth here.

I’ll be working closely with Andy, Josh, and KC to set up a solid infrastructure for this year. Then I’ll be stepping back and working for the TSM organization. Thank you everyone for your support last year, and I know KC and Josh will do an incredible job for the team moving forward.

TSM-ANALYST-1

 

After a mid July coaching shuffle, Team SoloMid online analyst Dylan Falco has decided to step away from the organization.

Announced in September, Dylan has worked with TSM for the past 14 months, travelling with the team for multiple events and helping the team prepare for the 2014 World Championship and 2015 Spring LCS playoffs.

“Recently, with Parth in-house and Reginald as acting head coach, TSM is now running with 3 on-site staff members helping the team prepare for upcoming matches. As the sole online member of the coaching staff this split, my role has been less impactful than I would like. Much of the match and strategy preparation is being done by Reginald, Locodoco and the team in person. As a result, we have mutually decided to part ways.”
