Kong had previously worked with the Dragons in 2018. He joined the team ahead of the inaugural season as an assistant coach, but served as the interim head coach for the Dragons twice during his previous tenure. After he left the Dragons following an 0-40 season and subsequent roster overhaul, he joined BlossoM's coaching staff. He will be reuniting with DPS player LIP, another alumnus from BlossoM.
Quatermain was previously a support player for the London Spitfire, having been picked up midway through the 2019 season. The Spitfire finished 16-12 by the end of the regular season, and fell in the first round of the lower bracket to the San Francisco Shock in the postseason. He was subsequently let go by the Spitfire during the offseason. According to a Weibo post made by the Dragons, Quatermain's role on the Dragons will include coaching the support players on the team and helping the team with internal scrims.
The two will join the Dragons' coaching staff headed by Moon. The team currently have a 6-1 record in the 2020 season.
