Team SoloMid is hosting open tryouts for their starting AD Carry role, the North American organization announced on Monday.

"We are announcing tryouts for the AD Carry role on our League of Legends roster," the team said in a press release. "As we are in the process of restructuring our management and rebuilding the team, we would like to explore more talent, new or old, in hopes of finding the best roster possible."

The announcement comes as part of a significant rebuild of TSM's roster, of which star mid laner Soren "Bjergsen" Bjerg is the sole remaining member. Earlier this month, Marcus "Dyrus" Hill and Ham "Lustboy" Jang-sik both retired, while Lucas "Santorin" Larsen left the squad to return to school.

Current AD Carry Jason "Wildturtle" Tran will be given a chance to retain his position by participating in the tryouts. Wildturtle was on the receiving end of plenty of community criticism for his play over the course of the NA LCS Summer Split. Wildturtle is also no stranger to competing for his job: earlier this year, TSM brought in Yuri "KEITH" Jew to compete for the spot, but ultimately Wildturtle played throughout the NA LCS playoffs and TSM's time in the 2015 World Championship.

TSM will have to move quickly on their roster overhaul, because the squad is set to make it's debut at IEM San Jose on Nov. 21 and 22.
