NRG add Sizz as Rocket League coach

The best Rocket League team in the world right now has a new addition in the form of an unexpected coach signing.
Emiliano "Sizz" Benny has joined NRG Esports as a Rocket League coach after nine months of sitting as a substitute for Rogue.

Sizz won the Golden Striker 3rd award back during Rocket League Championship Series Season 4 - North America but failed to find success on Selfless Gaming, Atelier or Rogue before he was removed from the latter's starting team to make way for former G2 Esports player Cameron "Kronovi" Bills.

Rocket League has seen NRG become a consistent top tier team, with wins at the first Rocket League Summit in August and the Beyond Entertainment: ASTRONAUTS Pro Invitational helping lift them into a consistent first in The Rating. Sizz's role will seek to keep NRG in that top spot going forward.

Pierre "Turbopolsa" Silfver, three-time back-to-back RLCS World Champion, has now settled into the NRG lineup that sits 3-0 in North America for the Rocket League Championship Series Season 8 so far. This includes revenge against G2 Esports for a loss in the semifinals of DreamHack Pro Circuit: Montreal 2019.

This news comes as Jeremy Dunham, Psyonix’s vice president of publishing, spoke to The Esports Observer and explained that Psyonix are 'carefully considering' franchising for the future of competitive Rocket League. With the move away from 'loot crates', with their removal due this December, to a clear item shop with set options for purchase, Psyonix appear to be adopting a 'Fortnite' model of microtransactions following their sale to Epic Games in May.

NRG as an organisation has been in the esports headlines frequently over the last few months. The sale of their CS:GO roster to Evil Geniuses, the addition of Hector "H3CZ" Rodriguez to their staff from OpTic and the acquisition of the Chicago franchise for the upcoming 2020 Call of Duty League have been in itself or related to some of the biggest esports news of the year.
