TSM has officially brought in Parth to be the team’s head coach ahea of the LCS Summer Split tournament.
After spending about two years as a manager, Parth “Parth” Naidu has recently made his return to the LCS scene. He has been part of TSM for the past four years as the team’s coach. However, the organisation has decided moved him to the manager position after the NA Regional Finals in 2018. He will now be part of the team’s LCS Summer Split roster as the head coach according to TSM.
Apparently, Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg and Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng had a huge role to play in bringing Parth back to the roster as a coach. The two expressed that they wanted to return to Parth’s coaching style for the summer series. Bjergsen also told the community that the coach has been part of their family for a long time. As a result, he knew every one of them well to train the roster. He said that he believed Parth would be capable of carrying TSM to success thanks to his past.
Parth had played in TSM’s roster back in 2016 and 2017. He was part of the team as the head coach when they finished Rift Rivals 2017 in the first spot. They also had a top finish in LCS NA 2017 together. At the time, TSM earned the title as the best league team in the NA region due to their vast success with three championships.
With the introduction of Parth, TSM said that the previous head coach Zhang “Peter Zhang” Yi would be leaving the LCS roster. Peter Zhang had first begun his time in the organisation with the academy roster. However, TSM moved him to the LCS roster for the summer series last year. Now, the organisation told that he will be going back to academy roster once again.
