With a heavy heart, I am announcing that I am no longer with Misfits / Mayhem after 3+ years with the company. I have had an unforgettable experience and had the pleasure of meeting and working with absolutely incredible individuals.— Matt AKhavan 大麥 (@MattAkhavan) August 19, 2019

Akhavan had been with Misfits, the parent organization of the Mayhem, since before the Mayhem's creation. He officially became the Mayhem's general manager in March of 2018.
This departure follows the Mayhem's second straight losing season. They went 6-22 this season after going 7-33 last season. The franchise won two matches in the same week for the first time in their final weekend of play in this season. That weekend also marked the first time the franchise swept their opponent--and they did it twice in the same week.
The Mayhem do not play again this season.
