Chet retires from CS:GO
The 100 Thieves coach has announced his retirement from CS:GO.
The news follows last week's report from DBLTAP, which first shed light on Chet "Chet" Singh exploring a possibility of moving to a coaching position in VALORANT. The former Evil Geniuses and 100 Thieves coach hasn't confirmed those rumors yet, only stating that his future will be revealed in the coming days.
The 24-year-old is now out of his contract with 100 Thieves, where he plied his trade for the last four months after coming in as a replacement for Aleksandar "kassad" Trifunović. Though the team continued to face difficulties competing against North America's top three teams at the first tournaments with the new addition, they eventually managed to beat FURIA, Liquid, and Evil Geniuses en route to second place at ESL Pro League Season 12, their last showing with Chet.
Before his time with Aaron "AZR" Ward & co., Chet was most known for coaching NRG and later Evil Geniuses, with whom he won ESL One New York and StarSeries i-League Season 8 last year and went on to briefly reside in the No. 1 spot in the world ranking shortly after that.
Chet had already contemplated a move to the Riot Games-developed FPS once before, just after he was relieved of his role in Evil Geniuses, but in the end he received a last-minute offer from 100 Thieves that he decided to accept. At the time, he was offered a General Manager position in VALORANT by an unnamed organization.
