T1 has fired its two League of Legends head coaches Daeny and Zefa after just seven months with the organization. The two world champion coaches we’re only 7 months with the organization.
“We are making this change at this point in an effort to reinvigorate our team’s chances of success with eight games remaining,” T1 said in a statement via the team’s Twitter account.
In hopes of turning the organization around, T1 brought Daeny and Zefa to the T1 coaching staff for the 2021 League of Legends Season. In 2020, T1 had missed the world championship for the third time in the organization’s history.
Right now, in terms of LCK standings, T1 holds a fifth place with a record of 5-5, ranking behind such teams as Gen.G, DWG KIA, Nongshim RedForce, and Afreeca Freecs. Together, the duo of coaches posted a win-loss record of 17-13 across T1’s matches this year. In terms of individual games, T1 has put up a win rate of 57 percent in 2021.
“We still have high hopes to finish strong in the LCK and earn a spot at Worlds,” T1 said in its statement.
T1 has not made an announcement as to who will lead the League team’s coaching staff moving forward. T1 will return to the LCK stage in just a few hours, as the team is set to kick off this week’s slate of games against longtime rival KT Rolster.
