Global Esports Adds Two New Members to Its Valorant Coaching Staff
In October, Global Esports’ CEO Rushindra Sinha stated that the organization would stick with its head coach Hong “Eraser” Chang-Pyo and sign assistant coaches to help him. Finally, Global Esports has signed two former coaching staff members of Spanish organization MAD Lions: Peter “Spin” Bradford and Morgan “BigTime” Jay, to support Eraser. These two new additions will work as assistant coaches alongside Eraser, to help prepare the organization’s Valorant roster for the upcoming Valorant Champions Tour 2023 (VCT 2023).
Global Esports signs Spin and BigTime as assistant coaches
Spin and BigTime were part of MAD Lions for the past seven months prior to joining Global Esports. During their time working together with the organization, the team competed in the VRL France Revolution Stage Two circuit. It ended the championship with a second-place finish behind Team Vitality. Spin worked for the team as the head coach, whereas BigTime was the analyst of the team.
Prior to MAD Lions, Spin was a coach for the British Esports organization TENSTAR for almost a year. TENSTAR showed a commendable performance under Spin’s guidance. The team finished in the top five positions in multiple tournaments, including Valorant Regional League (VLR) 2022 Northern Europe: Polaris Stage 1, VCT 2021: Europe Stage 3 Challengers 2, and more. On the other hand, BigTime will be stepping into a coaching role for the first time in his career in Global Esports.
Following is Global Esports’ complete Valorant team for the upcoming VCT 2023:
Jordan “AYRIN” He – In-game Leader (IGL)
Park “Bazzi” Jun-ki
Michael “WRONSKI” Wronski
Ganesh “SkRossi” Gangadhar
Abhirup “Lightningfast” Choudhury

Kim “t3xture” Na-ra
Bhavin “HellrangeR” Kotwani
Jayanth “skillZ” Ramesh
Akshay “KappA” Sinkar
Eraser – Head coach
Spin – Assistant coach
BigTime – Assistant coach
Based on recent social media posts, AYRIN and WRONSKI might have already reached South Korea to prepare for the upcoming VCT 2023 Kick-Off Tournament, which is set to take place in São Paulo, Brazil, starting in February 2023. However, unfortunately, some of Global Esports’ Valorant players are currently not allowed to travel until the approval of their Brazil visas. Furthermore, in a previous livestream, Global Esports’ CEO Rushindra Sinha revealed that it won’t be possible for Indian players to move to the organization’s South Korean bootcamp before VCT 2023 Kick-Off Tournament. It will be interesting to see how Global Esports prepares its players amid such hurdles.
