Official: zews joins Evil Geniuses as head coach
The 32-year-old veteran joins the EG roster after parting ways with MIBR at the end of March, replacing Chet "Chet" Singh, who was released from the roster following a breakdown in his relationship with Tarik "tarik" Celik and Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz.
The move marks zews' second stint with a North American roster, with the Brazilian coach having previously helped Liquid achieve new heights during a two-year-long tenure with the organization, from November 2016 to December 2018.
Notably, the addition of zews also reunites the player with stanislaw, whom he previously coached on Liquid during his first year with the team. After finding himself benched from the roster following a string of poor results, stanislaw took to Twitter to reveal that he and the coach did not always see eye to eye, adding: "At the end of the day we are just fundamentally two different types of leaders."
With almost three years having passed, the EG captain and Brazilian coach will give the partnership another try, with Evil Geniuses next set to take on FURIA in the lower bracket finals of ESL Pro League Season 11 on Saturday.
Evil Geniuses now have:
Wilton "zews" Prado (coach)
