JohnGalt's retirement is the latest in a series of changes the Justice have undergone in the last month. The team has changed general managers, dropped an assistant coach, watched two players retire and parted ways with one other player. The team's restructuring has left them with a lineup made up almost entirely of South Korean players and coaches, with the one exception remaining being main tank LullSiSH, who is Swedish.
JohnGalt joined the Justice over this past offseason as his first stint into working as a head coach on an Overwatch League team. The season was a rocky one for him and the Justice to this point as the team went just 3-10 while he was their head coach.
Prior to this season, JohnGalt was an assistant coach for the Los Angeles Gladiators in 2019. He and the Gladiators finished the regular season in the top six to automatically qualify for the playoffs.
JohnGalt said in his Twitlonger he would write analysis-based written content and stream analysis of Contenders and OWL VODs while studying.
