hazed open to coaching offers

James "hazed" Cobb has announced that he is willing to step into a coaching role on a team following the conclusion of the current ESEA MDL season.

hazed last played professionally for OpTic in 2017, initially joining the team as coach before temporarily playing with the roster following the departure of fellow stand-in Jason "jasonR" Ruchelski. Prior to that, hazed played under the CLG banner for almost two years, participating in five Majors with the roster with their most notable placement seeing them finish in the top eight at MLG Columbus 2016.

Since his stint on OpTic, a majority of hazed's time has been spent under the Mythic banner, playing with the roster in the past six seasons of ESEA MDL. While the team only achieved a playoffs berth on one occasion, their focus has remained directed towards streaming matches and practices, leaving the team with middle-of-the-pack results.

hazed is looking to give coaching a try once again

After initially tweeting that he was "going to stop being so passive in [his] ambitions" in both his personal and business life, hazed said in a follow-up tweet that he was open to coaching offers following the end of the current ESEA MDL season.

When contacted by HLTV.org, hazed informed us that he "would be open to building a team from scratch with up and coming talent or a pre-built team", further clarifying that he was open to both Pro and MDL offers, although the latter would be dependent on organizational funding to acquire players that he was interested in. hazed did not shut the door on his playing career entirely however, but alluded to having a better attitude and mindset when he was not playing the game himself.

They know me as the \_ounging machine. They know me from the \_ounging they see. They know me from the matches they watch. They talk about my \_ounging and think \_ounging is so easy. I just go and sit down and that's it. But my \_ounging, it comes from more than just a chair. For me - \_ounging - it is about never tilting. It's the part people don't see. This part, it does not show up in highlights, when I sit down to \_ounge everything already is a part of me.

2019-10-06 02:28
Man that is exactly what I was thinking. Sees he fellow mythic teammate land coaching gig with a big name team and thinks “hey I can do it too!” The problem is that hazed doesn’t have the pro cs to pedigree that Adren has and doesn’t have the connections with too teams like adren
2019-10-06 03:07
Did you even bother to look up his history? Better yet, did you even read the article? He already coached before, has more stickers than adren and played just as long. Adren even got kicked by the same team he is coaching. I'm no hazed fanboy, but people like you who act like they know things stand out like a sore thumb. Shut up if you don't know something. Study for that pop quiz on Monday.
2019-10-06 13:59
He's had this idea for a long time, predating what adreN did by a long time. But I will agree that he has issues with not having connections, which is a bit strange really since he was one of the better NA players back in the day.

Singularity is rebuilding their roster and they currently don't have a coach.

2019-10-06 10:37
smithzz did so much when he coached g2, right? tard
2019-10-06 21:09
So? hazed could be a much better coach compared to him. Only way to know that is to have him as a coach. Good example is adreN, he was basically a bot in game even playing for Mythic and now hes coaching liquid
