Wiz will make his debut in the Overwatch League after coaching for XL2 since late 2018. During his tenure, the team’s achievements include a runner-up finish in the 2019 Contenders Season 2: North America West, and a top six finish in The Gauntlet. Prior to XL2, he played and coached in Heroes of the Storm.
The Justice was one of the new expansion teams this season, and tied for 17th place in the final standings with a 8-20 record in the regular season.
The announcement came soon after they signed former Hangzhou Spark assistant coach Sup7eme to the franchise as a development coach, bringing the coaching lineup to three. They also have eight players on the roster to meet the minimum player requirement by November 15.
