Daniel "fRoD" Montaner is the latest Counter-Strike talent to make the move over to VALORANT, joining T1 as the squad's coach.

fRoD is most known for his time on compLexity and Evil Geniuses during Counter-Strike 1.6 and Counter-Strike: Source helping compLexity in particular become one of the world's best teams from 2005-2006. Among his top achievements include winning CPL Summer 2006, ESWC 2005, and Championship Gaming Invitational 2006.

Following the release of CS:GO, fRoD had a brief tenure with Denial, United5, and compLexity before hanging up the mouse and retiring in 2016.

After three years away from the game, fRoD returned as Swole Patrol's coach, staying with the lineup through their time with Lazarus before ultimately leaving the project in March 2020. This move reunites fRoD with Braxton "swag" Pierce, having coached the player during his tenure on Swole Patrol/Lazarus.

Guessing they were referring to his successful career in Counter-Strike 1.6 with coL. and EG along with his achievements from the CGS in Source. They probably only mentioned CS:GO because nobody that's began following CS in recent years have played or heard of CS 1.6 or CS:S before. But yeah WINNERS League was the only tournament he won as a coach even though that's online, never even heard of it until you brought it up tbh.
