Ninjas in Pyjamas named Daniel "djL" Narancic as the coach of their Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team on Friday.

He will take the position previously held by Bjorn "THREAT" Pers, who served in that role until last month before becoming the team's technical director.

"Daniel is a perfect fit for us -- an upcoming coach talent who up until now has shown promising results with limited resources," NiP COO Jonas Gunderson said. "Disciplined, hard working and with a modern approach to the game as he transitioned into a coach role at a fairly young age - he really clicks with the guys on a personal level. This is what we've been looking for, someone who can pull the team over the line when we tend to struggle."

The 27-year-old djL previously competed with Japaleno, Chaos Esports Club and Epsilon Esports among others before turning his attention to coaching in 2019.

"I obviously have my vision on how to approach the game, focusing on structure and discipline, and combined with Bjorn's analytical brain we'll accomplish great things in 2022," djL said.
