The Shanghai Dragons have announced the departure of head coach U4, effective immediately. Assistant coach Kong will be the team's interim head coach.
Staff change: Effective immediately, Chen Congshan “U4” steps down as the head coach of Shanghai Dragons. He will formally leave the post after a transition period of one week. Current assistant coach Sun Jun Young “Kong” will act as a stand-in coach.— Shanghai Dragons (@ShanghaiDragons) March 6, 2018
The Shanghai Dragons have started the Overwatch League season 0-14 under former LGD coach U4's leadership and are currently the only team in the league without a win. While the team has signed former Miraculous Youngster head coach Rui to the coaching staff, he has yet to arrive in Los Angeles to coach the team. He is expected to join the team at the end of March, according to team manager Van.
In the meantime between U4's departure and Rui's arrival, former Ardeont coach Kong will lead the team. The Dragons will be hoping he can replicate the success he had on Ardeont with Shanghai.
