TYLOO have announced the signing of Nestor "LETN1" Tanic as their new head coach.
The Serbian joins on a transfer from the Estonian side SC, with whom he had a short-term contract with since mid-April.
The new addition fills the gap left after the departure of QiFang "Karsa" Su, who stepped down from coaching the team in early April. Only two months after being promoted from the analyst position.
LETN1 joins the squad just weeks after they failed to qualify for PLG Major Antwerp, placing third in the Asia Regional Major Ranking. Following uncharacteristic losses against IHC and Renegades. The team currently have nothing on the calendar in terms of official appearances but have begun a bootcamp in Europe.

Hansel "BnTeT" Ferinand told reporters that the organization plans to stay long-term in the future.
"The plan is to stay in Europe as much as possible, to compete and practice in EU. We will go back to Asia probably only for RMR tournaments," the 29-year-old said.
It's not the first time TYLOO has decided to reach outside of China to bring in a new coach. Back in 2017 Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu stood behind the team for a few months, and in early 2019 it was Ivan "Johnta" Shevtsov who stood behind the team.
In those times TYLOO were known for their issues with communication, but LETN1 believes that won't be a big issue this time, as he has someone he has worked with before in former teammate BnTetT from their time spent together in EXTREMUM.
