After an underwhelming season in the LCS, iconic head coach Bok "Reapered" Han-gyu and Cloud9 parted ways. During the summer split, the team had failed to qualify for the League of Legends World Championship for the first time in the team's history after losing to TSM in the lower bracket. Reapered left the North American esports organisation after four years in which he won several domestic titles, most recently winning the LCS Spring Split. On Twitter, he now stated that is looking for a new team both in a head coach or possibly even in a business position.

He said: "Looking for a new opportunity as a free agent at this time. Open to teams in any region. Primarily look for Head Coach positions, but also open to more business-centric titles such as CGO." 

Reapered had started out his career as a player and became known during his stint in the South Korean organisations Azubu Blaze and SKT T1 as a top laner. Turning to the coaching role for EDward Gaming, Reapered's team won both Demacia Cup finals in 2015. In 2016, he was called up to Cloud9 and had remained in a head coach position ever since.

Due to his ability as a coach that saw many of his rosters punch above their assumed weight, Reapered is considered to be one of League of Legends' most iconic coaches and could therefore be a much-sought-after free agent in the post-Worlds transfer market.
