Cloud9 Valens will transition back to the Cloud9’s CS: GO Head Coach role just a month after vacating the position.
Cloud9 has switched back to Soham “Valens” Chowdhury as the C9 Counterstrike: Global Offensive Head Coach. Ronald “Rambo” Kim is leaving the position after a short trial period starting in January ended in him becoming the Head Coach of the C9 squad in March.
Cloud9 announced the move today, thanking Rambo for his work with the team:

Valens, who had moved to C9’s Head of Data Science position when Rambo took over, announced that he would return to the role on Twitter:
Nothing but great things to say about Ron's work ethic and mind for the game– it was a pleasure learning from and getting to know you. I'm back in the head coach position… I'll be seeing you guys soon 🙂 https://t.co/wbGRYWxFzH

Cloud9 has had a difficult run of late, failing to win a single match at BLAST Pro Series Miami. The team, with Valens back at the helm, will play in BLAST Pro Series Madrid followed shortly by Dreamhack Masters Dallas at the end of the month.
