Johnta joined HellRaisers on 7th June 2016 and was with the team for a duration of 18 months, during which the team witnessed a lot of success until recent times. Since, his departure from HR the Ukranian had been on a lookout for a challenge, finally striking a deal with Tyloo.

Jhonta will be Tyloo's first coach since the departure of Luis 'peacemaker' Tadeu, who left the team back in November 2017.
