100 Thieves has officially signed Chet “ImAPet” Singh as its new head coach for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO). Chet has been coaching since 2016 when he first joined Counter Logic Gaming. Since then Chet has coached for major organizations such as Optic Gaming, NRG Esports, and Evil Geniuses.

Some of his more notable performances include helping NRG finish first at Intel Extreme Masters XIII – Shanghai, and 3rd/4th at StarLadder Berlin Major 2019. Recently, he helped Evil Geniuses take down Astralis and finish first at ESL One: New York 2019 shortly after Berlin. From there he continued to help Evil Geniuses succeed as a CSGO team. While coaching EG, Chet earned the organization over $540,000 in prize money with multiple first-place finishes.

100 Thieves moving forward

100 Thieves recently parted ways with Aleksandar “Kassad” Trifunovic who had been coaching the players since they were on Renegades back in 2018. The move was a surprising one, but most fans agreed that there needed to be a change. Kassad released a statement on Twitter regarding why he and 100 Thieves had parted ways, stating “we have been drifting apart in more ways than one for a while now” but that there is absolutely no “bad blood” between them.

The team’s CSGO roster has been going downhill after finishing 2nd at Intel Extreme Masters XIV – Beijing. Since then the team has barely been able to finish above 5th at any tournament and been knocked down by lower teams.

Chet took to Twitter soon after 100 Thieves released the announcement video regarding his addition to the team. In his TwitLonger, Chet revealed that he had been given opportunities that didn’t live up to his expectations. He also mentioned the possibility of his joining a Valorant roster. “I was teamless in a pretty scary time, where (coronavirus) has pretty much limited a lot of CSGO opportunities, and opportunities given weren’t exactly what I would call living up to my expectations,” he explained. “Thankfully, I gave it enough time and didn’t sign my life away to Valorant where I was able to find a squad that I have a lot of faith in and they seem to have the same for me…” 100 Thieves will look to bounce back with its new coach at DreamHack Masters.
