There’s been a coaching change in the North camp as Torbjørn “mithR” Nyborg has parted ways with the team the organization has revealed. Taking mithR’s place is Jimmy “Jumpy” Berndtsson, formerly of fnatic.
mithR had been with the team for nearly a year having been brought in to replace Alexander “ave” Holdt. During his tenure as the teams coach, mithR helped lead the team to a win at GG.BET Ice Challenge 2019 and DreamHack Open Sevilla.
It seems the wind has blown the sails in a different direction, however, as the team has recently undergone some changes in not only their rebranding but in seeing Mathias “MSL” Lauridsen return to the lineup. MSL replaced a benched Jakob “JUGi” Hansen in the active lineup.
Jumpy has been on the market for five months now since departing fnatic who chose to move Andreas “Samuelsson” Samuelsson to the coach role. Jumpy had been with fnatic for three years and has plenty of experience as the sixth man.
North has struggled to live up to the hype built around the players at their disposal ever since Markus “Kjaerbye” Kjærbye elected to leave Astralis for the organization. These changes are certainly the next steps in North’s plan to ascend in the world of Counter-Strike.
