LA Gladiators brings on face as head coach, adds Unter and SMASH as assistant coaches

After parting ways with former head coach David “dpei” Pei earlier this month, the Los Angeles Gladiators has found its new head coach in the form of Sam “face” Merewether, the Overwatch League team announced today. L.A. also added Max “Unter” Unterwurzacher and Bee-won “SMASH” Cho as assistant coaches.

The ever-so-perennial contender didn’t have a horrible season this year by any means, but it was seemingly time for a change. The letting go of dpei and a number of other players on the roster, namely flex DPS Chris “MirroR” Trinh, main tank Kim “MuZe” Young-han, and support Grant “moth” Espe, signified somewhat of a new era for the Gladiators moving forward. Add in the retirement of Overwatch legend Kim “birdring” Ji-hyeok earlier this month and the Overwatch League team had its hands full going into the offseason.
