The Paris Eternal have announced the signing of Bumhoon “NineK” Kim as their new head coach.

NineK comes to Paris after spending the past two years with the San Francisco Shock. Before working with the Shock, he was with NRG Esports. NineK has a lot of experience working with struggling rosters. The San Francisco Shock started as a mediocre team during the inaugural season, but their growth during last year’s offseason was immediately felt during Stage 1.
After working alongside head coach Dae-hee “Crusty” Park, NineK knows what it takes to turn a team into champions, and he will be looking to turn Paris in the right direction. The Paris Eternal struggled after former head coach Julien “daemoN” Ducros stepped down to work as an assistant coach for the Dallas Fuel. Although Félix “Féfé” Münch stepped up to the plate, the Eternal failed to come together as a team. Under NineK’s leadership, fans are hopeful for the Eternal’s chances next season.
