LFT OWL 2020— Gunba (@GunbaOW) September 5, 2019
Gunba confirmed his contract with the Uprising ends in a month, prompting his search for a new team.
The Uprising struggled in the most recent season of the Overwatch League, ending outside of the playoffs with an 8-20 record. Despite having several coaches (including Gunba), the team never had a head coach. They signed Mineral to fill the position last night.
Gunba confirmed in his Twitlonger that neither he nor Assistant Coach Shake filled the void at head coach, and instead both continued working with assistant coach responsibilities.
Despite his struggles with the Uprising, Gunba actually has a winning record all-time as an Overwatch League coach. He was a member of the Valiant's coaching staff in the 2018 season, when the team went 27-13. That gives Gunba a 35-33 all-time record as an assistant coach.
