The Golden Guardians (GGS), an esports affiliate of the Golden State Warriors, have finalized their coaching staff and Academy roster for the 2020 Spring Split of the League of Legends Championship Series.\r\n\r\nCoaching additions include Aaron \u2018ChuChuZ\u2019 Bland as LCS assistant coach, Samuel \u2018Spookz\u2019 Broadley as two-way player-coach, Barento \u2018Raz\u201d Mohammed as Academy head coach and Jimmy Harrison as player performance coach for the 2020 Spring Split.\r\n\r\n[embed]https:\/\/twitter.com\/GoldenGuardians\/status\/1202309233749790720[\/embed]\r\n\r\nThe five-player Golden Guardians Academy roster is listed below:\r\n\r\nTop: Darshan \u2018Darshan\u2019 Upadhyaya\r\n\r\nJungle: Anthony \u2018Hard\u2019 Barkhovtsev\r\n\r\nMid: Nicholas \u2018Ablazeolive\u2019 Antonio Abbott\r\n\r\nAD Carry: Alex \u2018Gorica\u2019 Gorica\r\n\r\nSupport: Jae-Hyun \u2018Huhi\u2019 Choi\r\n\r\nUpadhyaya will begin his first full season with the Golden Guardians after joining in for the 2019 Summer Split, leading the Academy team to a franchise-best second-place finish in the 2019 NA Academy Summer Split Playoffs.\r\n\r\nBarkhovtsev will return to GGSA for his second full season with the team.\r\n\r\nAbbott joins the Golden Guardians after a two-year stint with Team SoloMid (TSM) Academy, where he led the team to an NA Academy 2019 Spring Split Championship.\r\n\r\nGorica, an attendee of the 2019 Honda Scouting Grounds hosted by the LCS, will make his professional debut this spring after competing collegiately with the University of Western Ontario in Canada.\r\n\r\nChoi enters his first full year with the Golden Guardians after competing with the LCS team beginning in the 2019 Summer Split.\r\n\r\nBoth the Academy and Main LCS squad look quite strong on paper, not teams who can contest the Championship, but teams who can earn a stable 3<sup>rd<\/sup>-4<sup>th<\/sup> spot in their corresponding leagues. While Academy\u2019s primary role was to foster upcoming rookies, more veteran LCS players who are being kicked out of their primary teams find out themselves in an Academy roster. This situation is due to imports overtaking the region if Riot will not step in and solve it anyhow, then one day, we will wake up with no remaining in the LCS at all.\r\n\r\nThe Golden Guardians LCS roster, which was announced earlier this month, includes Kevin \u2018Hauntzer\u2019 Yarnell, Can \u2018Closer\u2019 \u00c7elik, Greyson \u2018Goldenglue\u2019 Gilmer, Victor \u2018FBI\u2019 Huang and Yuri \u2018Keith\u2019 Jew. Nick \u2018Inero\u2019 Smith will coach the team.\r\n\r\nWhile the previous season was unfortunate for both the main and Academy squad, the currently upgraded line ups look promising. While Goldenglue will be the primary carry in the main team, Ablazeolive looks to be the primary carry in the academy team, after playing previously for TSM Academy and stomping most academy mid laners.
