The North American support player is currently only enrolled on a trial basis. It is the first time that ppd has coached a team. In the official statement on Alliance's homepage he explained that he always wanted to try working as a coach. Known for his salty statements, Alliance CEO Jonathan 'Loda' Berg joked in his statement that while Alliance are the good guys, they sometimes need a touch of evil.
So far, the trial phase seems to be working out quite well. Alliance are in first place in the DPC21: S2 - WEU Upper Division with a 4-1 score. Carry player Nikolay 'Nikobaby' Nikolov already teased ppd as their new coach when he added some salty emojis to his tweet.
