Counter Logic Gaming released coaches Kim "SSONG" Sang-soo and Weldon Green on Monday following a ninth-place finish to the League of Legends Championship Series summer split, the team announced.

The news comes after Counter Logic Gaming netted the least combined wins of any LCS franchise to ever compete in both the spring and summer split of the league with just eight across the two splits. The organization has been a part of the professional North American League of Legends scene since it was formed in early 2013 and won multiple championships across 2015 and 2016.

This season, Counter Logic Gaming often looked disjointed after taking a big swing on mid laner Lee "Crown" Min-ho in free agency in November. The team would release Crown in the spring split after both he and the team performed poorly, instead signing Eugene "Pobelter" Park, who took a positional coaching job with Team Liquid after failing to find a team this offseason.

With Pobelter, Counter Logic Gaming looked competitive for a brief period but fizzled out as the spring split concluded. Counter Logic Gaming won a total of three games in the spring. The team continued with a lackluster summer, winning just five games and failing to qualify for the LCS summer playoffs.
