Fnatic Valorant, a prominent esports organization, is in search of a new head coach for its Valorant roster for the upcoming 2024 season. This decision comes after Jake “mini” Harris decided to step down from the role in pursuit of a healthier work-life balance.
In an unusual move in the world of esports, Fnatic has announced that its Valorant roster, which achieved significant success this year by winning two trophies, will remain unchanged. This decision to keep the core players intact was confirmed by Colin “CoJo” Johnson, Fnatic’s VALORANT team director.

Statement from Colin “CoJo” Johnson
Johnson emphasized the team’s strong camaraderie, stating, “The team enjoys playing together, we’re quite close and friendly as teammates, [and] we’ve created a nice and easy-to-work-in culture throughout the years. And we were what, 24-3? There would have to be serious internal issues for us to change anything.”
The Search for a New Head Coach
While the roster remains consistent, the head coach role needs to be filled. Fnatic has opened applications for this position on its Careers page, outlining the extensive responsibilities expected from the head coach. The successful candidate will be required to relocate full-time to Berlin, Germany, where the VCT EMEA league takes place.
High Expectations for the New Head Coach
Given the exceptional talent and accomplishments of Fnatic’s current VALORANT roster, the organization will likely have high expectations for its new head coach. With the 2024 season approaching, Fnatic aims to secure a coach as soon as possible to ensure ample time for preparation.
Fnatic Valorant decision to retain its successful roster reflects its commitment to maintaining a winning formula and fostering a positive team environment. As the organization embarks on the search for a new head coach, the Valorant community eagerly awaits the next chapter in Fnatic Valorant competitive journey.
