Heretics release B1GGY following ESIC ban
The Heretics management stated they have no reason to believe the players were aware of the exploit after reviewing the demos.
Heretics have terminated coach Morgan "B1GGY" Madour's contract after he was banned for 7.5 months by the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC) for using the spectator bug in 26 rounds across three games in 2019. In a statement, the Spanish organisation apologised to the CS:GO community and insisted that there is no evidence suggesting that the players were complicit in the coach's actions.
"We are committed to complying with the rules and fair play," Heretics' official statement reads. "Because of that, we condemn any action that goes against competitive integrity. Therefore, we have terminated effective immediately Morgan
[B1GGY] as our CSGO coach for his actions. After reviewing carefully all the involved matches, at Heretics we have no reason to believe that any of the players were aware of this bug exploit."
The 27-year-old's termination comes two days short of his first anniversary with Heretics, as he was formally announced as the team's coach on September 30, 2019. The three cases for which he was banned all took place before his official unveiling, while he was guiding the team on a trial basis.
