The legendary German in-game leader has returned from VALORANT to become the head coach of the German team. BIG have announced that Fatih “gob b” Dayik has joined the CS:GO team as the new head coach following his assistance during the RMR tournament, replacing Niclas “enkay J” Krumhorn in the position. The 34-year old is one of the founding members of BIG, filling different roles in the organization. First as a player in their CS:GO team, then coaching their BIG Academy project and recently being a part of their VALORANT squad. He now returns to the game where he has been known as the “godfather of German Counter-Strike.” 

As he reached the grand finals of ESL One Cologne 2018 and multiple Major playoffs with a German-majority lineup. “It’s time to follow my heart and return to the game that made me the person I am today,” stated Fatih “gob b” Dayik about his return from VALORANT. “I’m not the guy who only tries things: if I commit I am doing it 100%.” “I am looking forward to working with the team and to have my first appearance behind them at the PGL Antwerp Major!” Roman “Roman R.” Reinhardt, Head of CS:GO at BIG, stated that the new coach has already had an immense effect on the team.
