Mousesports Announce “mithR” as New CS:GO Head Coach

Danish CS:GO coach Torbjørn “mithR” Nyborg has been announced as the new Mousesports Head Coach, with the 30-year-old set to arrive at the organization following their encounter with Astralis. MithR has been with the Renegades for over four months, having replaced Allan “Rejin” Petersen, who was handed a 19.8-month ban after using the spectator bug back in September.

With a host of coaches having been issued with bans as a result of using the bug over recent years, mithR was seen as the best man for the job by mousesports. The Dane has coached the likes of Apeks and aTTaX North in the past, having helped the latter in winning both the GG.Bet Ice Challenge and DreamHack Open Sevilla just last year.

Why Mousesports Opted to Bring in mithR

He also helped Renegades in achieving a good run of results during his time there as coach, with mousesports undoubtedly hoping that his experience can aid their development. The team is currently competing at the IEM Beijing-Haidan, where they already have a win over BIG to their name.

While mithR was unable to lend his support to mousesports for their Group B upper-bracket match against Astralis, due to the fact that his arrival was made official less than eight hours before the start of the encounter, he will be on board from now on. The period of eight hours must be adhered to if any roster changes are to be made, including coaches.

When Fans Can Expect to See mithR in Mousesports Colours

Having been defeated by Astralis, mithR’s first duty as Head Coach of mousesports will be to lead them in the lower bracket, in the hope of qualifying for the playoffs at the beginning of the week.

It remains to be seen as to when and where Rejin will make his return, with a return to mousesports having not been ruled out. However, mithR will be in charge for the foreseeable future, as he looks to get the best out of a roster that is made up by Chris “chrisJ” de Jong, Robin “ropz” Kool, Finn “karrigan” Andersen, David “frozen” Čerňanský and Aurimas “Bymas” Pipiras.
