He began his coaching career with the Valiant in 2018 after playing with Australian teams as a support prior to that. He helped guide the Valiant to a 27-13 record and a top four finish.
During the subsequent offseason, the Valiant sent Gunba to the Uprising to serve as one of the team's coaches. They did not have a head coach during the 2019 season.
The Uprising went just 8-20 in the 2019 season after winning just one match in the second half of the season. Gunba was one of two coaches released after the season ended.
Gunba will be joining a coaching staff that looks a little bit different from the last time he worked with them. While Stoop is still an assistant coach with the team, they now have Packing10 as their head coach and reprize as an assistant coach.
