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.
Vitality coach faculty already left the project. He is kinda the reason why the project existed at the first place. https://t.co/3LODQHwhJ3— neL (@neLendirekt) November 13, 2018
Faculty's exit has French CS:GO fans scratching their heads. In August, DBLTAP 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.
