NA ECL coach joins Indian organization alongside NBK-, Nivera

This word salad of a title is one of the strangest signings in a long time.

In one of the strangest signings in a long time, former NA ESL Challenger League coach, Chris "Jeebs" DeSantis, has been signed as the assistant coach of a new roster helmed by two-time Major winner, Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt, back by Indian esports organization Revenant. The signing sees Jeebs join onto a new project by the Indian organization as they have pivoted away from domestic squads in order to chase international success.

This new roster led by NBK- sees the Frenchman reunite with Laurențiu "lauNX" Țârlea with whom he plied his trade in 2022 to 2023 with Falcons. Also on the roster are former IKLA player Adelin "adeX" Nica, former Sprout player Kamil "reiko" Cegiełko, and most surprisingly of all, former Vitality Nabil "Nivera" Benrlitom who has returned to CS2 after three years in VALORANT with Liquid and Karmine Corp.

The younger brother of NBK-'s former Titan teammate, Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom, will look to make it big in CS once again after showing signs of promise during the online era under Vitality.

In the coaching department Jeebs will be the understudy of Patrik "pakeZ" Rozsos, a lesser known coach who has previously worked with The Prodigies and Project G in the lower levels of the European scene. This will be Jeebs' largest and most prestigious role to date, as the 21-year-old coach's only notable role to date was with Gareth "MisteM" Ries' ill-fated Limitless for five months in 2023. He will be responsible for helping a roster of multiple disparate parts assemble into a winning squad as the 30-year-old NBK- looks to roll back the clock and find success internationally once again.

Revenant are now:

  • Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt

  • Laurențiu "lauNX" Țârlea

  • Adelin "adeX" Nica

  • Kamil "reiko" Cegiełko

  • Nabil "Nivera" Benrlitom

  • Patrik "pakesZ" Rozsos (Coach)

  • United States Chris "⁠Jeebs⁠" DeSantis (Assistant Coach/Analyst)
