Fnatic’s former head coach Dylan Falco is set to join Schalke 04 for the upcoming 2019 season in the LEC.

In 2018, Dylan Falco led Fnatic to two successive EU LCS titles, the semifinals of the 2018 Mid-Season Invitational, and the finals of Worlds—so he has some impressive pedigree.

Despite all his success with Fnatic in the past year and a half, Dylan Falco was let go from the organization when his contract expired last week, opening him up to explore other options.

Fnatic fans will be wondering who else their team will lose after such an impressive year, going into 2019. Legendary top laner Paul “sOAZ” Boyer has already switched sides to Misfits in the offseason and there are reports of mid laner Rasmus “Caps” Winther, MVP of the Summer Split, joining G2 Esports.

As for Schalke, they still have a long offseason ahead of them. The Riot Contract Database currently lists ADC Elias “Upset” Lipp as their only player so far, which means they still have four more spots to fill before January of next year.
