Team Vitality CS:GO Coach Leaves After Barely a Month

Philippe "faculty" Rodier announced his departure from Team Vitality on Tuesday, just one month after joining the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team as its head coach.

In ​his tweet, faculty expressed disappointment that his time with Vitality's ​CS:GO squad had ended so quickly, but wished the team well in the future.

Faculty's exit has French CS:GO fans scratching their heads. In August, reported that ​Nathan “NBK-“ Schmitt was set to lead an all-French roster for Team Vitality in what would be the organization's first foray into Counter-Strike. A couple months later, the team ​revealed that roster Oct. 8 with faculty in the head coach position.

Now, after just over a month of competition, faculty's departure has thrown the team's future into question. Vitality itself has yet to release a comment on the situation, but has continued to tweet about its CS squad regardless as it gears up to earn a spot in an upcoming WESG tournament.
