After five years of coaching, Neil “pr0lly” Hammad will be switching gears in 2020. The former 100 Thieves head coach will be on the analyst desk for the upcoming League of Legends Championship Series Spring Split. It has been a quiet off-season for pr0lly, but a tweet by the man himself Thursday afternoon before the start of LCS made the news public.
100 Thieves parted ways with pr0lly in the off-season in the process of rebuilding its organization from the ground up, who found himself in free agency alongside 4/5 of his roster from the previous split.
Before coaching 100 Thieves for the past two seasons, pr0lly was head coach for H2k-Gaming in the EU LCS. Under pr0lly’s leadership, H2k qualified for the 2015 and 2016 World Championships, and was within a series of qualifying once again in 2017 before being swept by Fnatic in the EU Regional Final for the 3rd European seed. Prior to his coaching career, pr0lly was a professional mid laner, and most notably played for compLexity Gaming in his final NA LCS split in the summer of 2014.
