You may know him from his role as Interim Head Coach for the Valiant, or his perpetual speaker box prison.— Los Angeles Valiant (@LAValiant) September 4, 2019
We are proud to introduce our Head Coach, Mike '@Packing_10' Szklanny pic.twitter.com/u3aRrRTBBh
Packing10 first took over the position of Valiant head coach in March following the release of the team's previous head coach, Moon. That followed the team's 0-7 Stage 1.
The Valiant went 12-9 following Packing10's assumption of the head coach role, including a stage playoff appearance in Stage 3 off the back of a 5-2 record and an upset victory over the then-undefeated Vancouver Titans.
Despite their strong finish, the Valiant were unable to overcome their winless Stage 1 and ended up finishing the season 13th in the overall standings, just outside a place in the play-in tournament.
Packing10 joined the Valiant back in February alongside DongSu prior to the start of the 2019 season. At the time, the Valiant went with a roster and coaching staff mixed with Korean and western members. Now, Packing10 leads a roster and staff that's entirely western--with the exception of flex support KariV.
The Valiant's 2019 season is over following their 12-16 record.
