The Danish CS:GO team North has got a new head coach – Torbjørn "mithR" Nyborg is no longer part of the organization, his place has been taken by Jimmy "Jumpy" Berndtsson.
MithR joined North as a coach last February. He helped the team to win GG.Bet Ice Challenge 2020 and DreamHack Open Sevilla 2019, as well as place 3rd-4th at ECS Season 7 Finals and 12-14th at StarLadder Berlim Major 2019. Recently the team failed to make it through the open qualifiers for IEM XIV – Katowice 2020 and finished 5-6th at DreamHack Open Leipzig 2020. MithR announced that he is going to continue his coaching career.
Jumpy is a 33-years-old retired Counter-Strike and CS:GO player, who switched to coaching in 2016. First, he coached Escape Gaming, and in late 2016 he joined Fnatic and had been their coach until last September. Since then he has been inactive.
North will debut with their new coach at DreamHack Open Anaheim 2020, which will take place on February 21st-23rd in United States, where they will compete for a $100,000 prize pool.
