I'd like to thank @NYXL for the opportunity to help build a founding team in the #OverwatchLeague. I'm really proud of what we've been able to accomplish, and I'm looking forward to the next adventure.— scott tester (@theBEARHANDS) April 30, 2018
The brief announcement reads as follows:
We've mutually agreed to part ways with Director of Player Personnel, Scott Tester. We thank him for all of his efforts in making the launch of NYXL such a success and wish him the best in his future endeavors
As one of the members behind the Excelsior's successes in the first two Overwatch League stages, BEARHANDS saw the team take a second place finish in Stage 1 and first place finish in Stage 2.
It is unknown currently who the Excelsior will to pursue another candidate for the now vacant Director of Player Personnel position.
