On the 19th (KST), Griffin announced via Twitter that they’ve mutually parted ways with two members of their coaching staff, Head Coach Han “H-Dragon” Sang-yong and Lee “GBM” Chang-seok.
Griffin had their worst season in the LCK to date. Not only did they finish last place in the standings of the 2020 LCK Spring split, they were relegated into Challengers Korea after losing to Seorabeol Gaming and SANDBOX Gaming in the 2020 LCK Summer Promotion Tournament. After being relegated, Griffin announced that they're in discussion of contract termination with the players. Shortly after, it was announced that Viper, Ucal and Untara have parted ways with the organization, with Viper joining Hanwha Life Esports.
With this announcement, Griffin commented, “We are sad to announce that we have terminated the contracts with coach SangYong Han and ChangSeok Lee, who have been with Griffin for the Spring split, in mutual agreement. Team Griffin is sincerely grateful for their contribution and will cheer on for their future endeavours.”
