Dignitas promoted analyst Halvor "vENdetta" Gulestøl to head coach of its Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team Friday, where he'll fill the void left by Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson's promotion to vice president of esports.

In a Friday episode of Dignitas' Off The Record video series, vENdetta described the move to head CS:GO coach as "an incredible opportunity." He credited Fifflaren with helping the promotion take place, and expressed optimism about the team's future.

"I'm really looking forward to the challenge," vENdetta said. "I'm obviously still going to be learning the ropes as we go, but I feel like I've picked up a little bit from Fiff already just from sitting in practices and watching how he has gone about his role as a coach with the team prior."

VENdetta joined Dignitas in February.

On the in-game side, Dignitas handed the mantle of in-game leader to Adam "friberg" Friberg. The team remains in search of two new players to round out its squad following the benching of Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund and Richard "Xizt" Landström.
