After Cloud9 revealed yesterday that it would begin another restructuring of its Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team, changes are already coming thick and fast. Former caster Henry ‘HenryG’ Greer will become the org’s general manager for CS:GO, while Aleksandar “Kassad” Trifunovic will serve as coach.
HenryG has confirmed that Kassad was appointed by him as the first building block for Cloud9’s restructure. Kassad comes to the job with experience from mousesports, Renegades, and 100 Thieves, and HenryG clearly sees him as the man to take Cloud9 where they want to go. As for who specifically Kassad will be coaching, we still don’t know.
As part of the recently announced restructuring, it was confirmed that the entire roster was set to be dropped. Along with appointing Kassad, HenryG’s job will be to fill that roster, and he revealed on Twitter that he’s just getting started. “The five man roster is not finalised and I still have seats available,” he says.
“You think you have what it takes to compete in the top 10 of the world?You know where to find me. Act fast,” HenryG says as he signs off his message.
While we're here, the 5 man roster is not finalised and I still have seats available.

Cloud9’s CEO Jack Etienne told fans yesterday that Cloud9 would help place the current roster with “new teams that are good fits and will help them further their careers,” but it appears that will happen sooner rather than later with HenryG moving ahead quickly on the rebuild.
