Packing10 will share the general manager role with current GM Michael Schwartz, and will retain his head coach role. Parent company Immortals also announced him as the general manager for their VALORANT roster.
Schwartz said on Twitter that Packing10 will focus on “the competitive decision making” for both Overwatch and VALORANT, while Schwartz will stay and focus on operations and business development.
Packing10 joined the Valiant as a coach in the beginning of the 2019 season, and became the team’s head coach in September of that year following an interim period in the place of former head coach Moon.
He joins assistant coach Gunba on the Immortals’ VALORANT staff, where Gunba became their coach earlier this month.
The Valiant are currently in eight place in the regular season standings. Their next match is against the Paris Eternal on June 28.
