Splyce has picked up a new League of Legends head coach in Fayan “Gevous” Pertijs and a new analyst in Fabien “GuySake” Ungerer, the organization announced Friday.

Gevous has spent time with a number of League of Legends teams including SK Gaming, Natus Vincere, and SuperMassive. Most recently, he coached Brazilian squad RED Canids to a first place finish at the CBLOL Summer playoffs. He’ll be replacing Jakob “YamatoCannon” Mebdi, who recently joined Team Vitality.

GuySake earned his analyst wings under former Fnatic head coach Luis “Deilor” Sevilla, the coach who orchestrated Fnatic’s undefeated run through the 2015 EU LCS Summer Split.

In a video included in the announcement, Splyce owner Marty “LazerChicken” Strenczewilk stated that there will be more staffing announcements to come for the organization. For that upcoming news and more, head over to the Yahoo Esports League of Legends hub.
