Inero joins Golden Guardians as consultant

Nick “Inero” Smith is joining Golden Guardians as a consultant, the team announced through a news release on social media.

Inero started his career as coach back in 2015 with Mousesports, a European esports organization. In May 2017 he became the head coach of Echo Fox as the team began its transition into the newly franchised NA LCS.

Under Inero’s command, Echo Fox finished in third place during the Spring Split. The team then failed to repeat that success during the summer. Inero announced through Twitter he was leaving his position in July.

Now the former coach has joined Golden Guardians as a consultant. He also will be working with Order, an Australian organization competing in the OPL.

“To ensure that we are at our best as we fight for playoffs, we are reorganizing our LCS coaching staff. We asked Tyler and the LCS staff to step back from their roles, Daniel “Mango” Morissette will be handling stage responsibilities in the interim, and we are excited to have Nick “Inero” Smith now as a consultant to bring a fresh perspective and new voice to the team,” Golden Guardians wrote on in a press release.

Golden Guardians finished the Spring Split in tenth place. It was the first split for the team owned by NBA team Golden State Warriors. After completing multiple roster changes, the team is still looking for the formula to success.

Inero’s addition to Golden Guardians follows the wave of coaching staff changes in the NA LCS that started early in the Summer Split.

“I’m excited to help them improve their practice set up for the players for the rest of the split that can hopefully carry forward for the rest of their franchise,” Inero wrote on Twitter.
