Ferris Ganzman
Head Coach- 2nd Season

Phone: 847-450-4056
E-mail: [email protected]

Robert Morris University is pleased to announce that Mr. Ferris "AGeNt" Ganzman has joined the Athletic Department as the coach of the first League of Legends Varsity  eSports team.  Mr. Ganzman is a recent graduate of Loyola University in Chicago and brings a wealth of League of Legends expertise and experience to Robert Morris University’s athletic department. 

Prior to accepting this position, Mr. Ganzman began his foray into League of Legends as a Manager for Orbit Gaming.  Ferris was responsible for recruiting and selecting players for their semi-professional team, a team that ultimately competed at MLG Anaheim, MLG Raleigh and found success in several major online tournaments.  The team consisted of players that today find themselves on Cloud 9, CLG, and TSM.

Mr. Ganzman later joined a European Challenger team called Sinners Never Sleep as an analyst, who pursued Riot’s League Championship Series.  The team not only qualified for the professional league, but they were picked up by the Lemondogs organization.   After finishing 2nd in Europe, they qualified for the World Championship.

Ferris also became an analyst for The Walking Zed, a team who was picked up by Cloud 9 as their North American challenger team.  During his years as manager, coach and analyst, 14 of the 19 players he influenced found tremendous success, advancing to play in the League of Legends Championship Series.  He attributes his coaching success thus far to mutual respect, where his gamers developed as players and he grew as a coach as well.  Ferris is currently serving as the Director of League of Legends for Gamers Network, an outreach group comprised of over 50 professional and challenger teams, various sponsors, casters and free agents.  His experience in consulting for professional players, working as a game analyst and recruiting quality players for various teams makes him a natural choice to take the helm of RMU’s League of Legends team. 

Ferris will be responsible for selecting members of the Varsity and Varsity Reserve League of Legends squads for the 2014-15 academic year, as well as management and coaching duties.  He will be working closely with Kurt Melcher, Associate Athletic Director and Director of e-Sports, pursuing a successful inaugural season for the League of Legends teams.
