WhyNot joins the Excelsior after spending the 2019 season with the Seoul Dynasty. He joined the team in October of 2018. The team qualified for the playoffs after making it out of the play-in tournament and finished the season in the top eight. He was released from the Dynasty in November.
Despite several changes to the staff this offseason, WhyNot is the first new addition to the Excelsior coaching staff following the end of the 2019 season. The team parted with head coach Pavane and promoted assistant coach IMT to head coach soon after.
The Excelsior have 10 players on their roster and four coaches on their staff. Seven players and three coaches are returning from last season. The Excelsior went 22-6 in 2019's regular season and finished the season in third.
They play their first match of 2020 February 8 against the Spitfire.
