Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström has stepped down as FaZe Clan's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
One of the main reasons RobbaN decided to step down was to spend more time with his family and his second child.
In February of 2016, as FaZe Clan first entered Counter Strike, we brought on @FaZeRobbaN as our Coach and he has been instrumental to this day in helping us build Champions.— FaZe Clan (@FaZeClan) January 5, 2019
Today, RobbaN announces he is stepping down as Head Coach. Below is a statement from him.#FaZeUp pic.twitter.com/YPG0QtwYVa
The CS:GO coach made the decision a few months ago, but wanted to finish the year out with the team. He is planning to stay on the team in a different role that he will announce at a later date.
This announcement feeds into the belief that Janko "YNk" Paunović is a prime candidate to replace RobbaN on FaZe Clan. YNk had the opportunity to join FaZe Clan this past summer, but chose to join MIBR instead.
