Amidst the chaos of LCS preseason roster changes, TSM is proud to share with you its LCS coaching staff for the upcoming 2021 year today!
As announced a few weeks ago, Bjergsen has retired as a professional player and decided to take up the mantle of Head Coach for TSM.
By his side will be Assistant Coach Curry and Strategic Coach & Head Scout Kayys. Curry played major roles on FlyQuest’s coaching staff over the past couple of years and worked previously with TSM in 2017. Kayys on the other hand previously worked with Team Liquid and Origen before he started working for us at the start of Summer 2020. Haitham (who was with us for the past couple of years) will remain at TSM as our Data Analyst.
I'm very excited to return to TSM - I've always considered TSM to be my home and coming back means the world to me. I'm looking forward to reuniting with Bjergsen and PoE who I've shared a lot of success with as well as working with the rest of the extremely talented staff and players. Ultimately I hope to re-establish TSMs dominance at home and make a deep run at worlds.

I’m glad to have joined TSM; it being one of the more historic organizations adds to overall excitement. During the off-season, one of the larger focal points was counterbalancing the strengths & weaknesses of the coaching staff & roster. I’m confident in the group we assembled and am looking forward to the 2021 season.

Last, but not least, Peter Zhang will remain in his role as Head of Player Development and will continue his work with the academy team. Please join us in welcoming (back) these individuals as they settle into their new positions and work to continue TSM’s legacy of success!
