North American organization NRG Esports NRG Esports North America Rank #0 has announced their entry into Valorant with the signing of Damian " daps " Steele and Chet " Chet " Singh as player and coach respectively. The two were previously on the organization's Counter-Strike roster as in-game leader and coach prior to the organization's withdrawal from the scene.
daps was recently with Gen.G in Counter-Strike before he stepped down last month and eventually became a free agent. Chet was planning to move to Valorant around the launch of the game as a general manager for an unnamed team, but had stayed in CS:GO as a coach for 100 Thieves. He later retired from CS:GO last week.
Chet's move to Valorant was first reported by DBLTAP's Jarek "DeKay" Lewis, a few days before the coach announced his retirement. Rush B Media's Ryan Friend later reported that NRG would sign daps and Chet for Valorant, and are also planning to sign Gen.G CS player s0m to the team.
