After six months apart, the coaching duo of Brandon “Saintvicious” DiMarco and David “Cop” Roberson is back together. Saintvicious has been signed as a League of Legends coach for Team Dignitas, the organization announced Friday.

This will be Saint’s second stint on Team Dignitas, a team he helped coach up from the NA Challenger Series when they were known as Apex Gaming. The Philadelphia 76ers eventually acquired Apex, merging them with Team Dignitas under the latter’s branding. Saintvicious left the organization for the 2017 Spring Split to become a coach at Team Liquid.

Cop has been the head coach of Team Dignitas since February of this year, when he was tasked with turning around talented NA LCS roster that was struggling to find a foothold during the 2017 NA LCS Spring Split. Despite some positive results, the team failed to make it out of the first round of playoffs. Saintvicious will be stepping in as the roster attempts to realize their potential in the Summer Split.

Saint and Cop have a long history together, going way back to when they were competitors during League of Legends Season 1, eventually becoming teammates on Team Curse in the first season of the NA LCS. Eventually, the duo would play together on Gravity in 2015, and then coach together on Apex and Team Dignitas.

In other roster change news, Li “Vasilii” Weijun has signed to Newbee Gaming over in the LPL, while Mysterious Monkeys have purchased up Misfit Academy’s slot over in the EU LCS. For more, head over to the Yahoo Esports League of Legends hub.
