League of Legends: Excel Sign Alex Parejo as Assistant Coach & Head of Performance
LEC team Excel Esports has two substantial signings in their back office. Alex Parejo is joining Excel as their new Assistant Coach after leaving his role at Fnatic as Head Analyst. He’ll join fellow Fnatic college Joey “YoungBuck” Steltenpool who joined as the team’s new Head Coach.
Excel also confirmed new hire Fabian Broich as its Head of Performance for 2020. Kieran Holmes-Darby, CEO of Excel Esports spoke about Fabian: “At Excel, we’ve always wanted to be bold and break new ground in the esports industry. Moving forward we’re looking to bring more and more innovative individuals into Excel like Fabian, in the hope that we can revolutionize the way things are done, whilst never losing sight of our roots in the UK.”
Outside of new staff hires, Excel has also seen two new additions to the team’s starting roster with rumored signings Tore “Tore” Hoel Eilertsen and Patrik “Patrik” Jírů.
As things stand, Excel Esports’ starting roster is:
Top – Expect/Send0o
Jungler – Caedrel/Taxer
Mid – Special
ADC – Patrick/Jeskla
Support – Tore/kaSing
Excel is likely to field a side in the 2020 UK regional League of Legends league, which would explain the team having two players for each role. Earlier this week Excel confirmed that mid laner Exileh would be leaving the organization.
As of today, the future of a UK regional league is not fully understood with rumors aplenty that the UKLC could be over as organizer LVP has pulled out of the region.
