There are a lot of players who made their transition into Valorant from other games, but not every one of them has found the success yet. Former CS:GO coach Chet “Chet” Singh is among those who are still looking for an achievement in the Valorant scene. However, as of April 5, he will no longer be the coach of NRG.
The North American coach has played a key role in the build up of NRG’s Valorant squad since he gathered up the squad on day 1. “Today we mutually parted ways with Chet Singh, Chet was fundamental in the creation of NRG Valorant. We thank you for everything you contributed to the NRGFAM. We wish you all the best.” the team said on Twitter.
The squad made four different roster changes under the management of Chet but wasn’t able to become a tier 1 team in North America. Recently, NRG failed to qualify for VCT 2021 Stage: Masters 1 and Stage 2: Challengers 1.
According to the coach’s Tweet, this decision was made last week. “Decided to step down as of last week. Going to explore my options in CS and VAL,” Chet said.
Chet was one of the best coaches in the CS:GO scene before moving over to Valorant. Between 2018 and 2019, he was the brain behind NRG’s and Evil Geniuses’ accomplishments. After leaving EG and joining 100 Thieves, 2020 wasn’t pretty for the coach. With the dying North America CS:GO scene and the launch of Valorant, he accepted the coach role of NRG in October.
Yesterday, NRG’s Valorant team got eliminated from VCT 2021 Stage 2: Challengers 1 and its next matchup will be in Stage 2: Challengers 2, which will start on April 22.
