The team continues to grow!— Florida Mayhem (@FLMayhem) October 2, 2018
Please welcome, Scott "BEARHANDS" Tester as Assistant General Manager.
Scott will also aid in future talent scouting for Mayhem.
BEARHANDS was signed by the New York Excelsior in June of 2017 as Director of Player Personnel and was responsible for signing the team's initial roster, which was mostly composed of players and staff from LuxuryWatch Blue.
He left the team in May of this year. According to the announcement at the time, the split was mutually agreed upon by both BEARHANDS and the Excelsior.
He did not join a new franchise before the end of the Overwatch League season. Instead, he became the general manager of Team USA's World Cup squad, and selected the roster alongside head coach Aero.
He will work with Mayhem general manager Matthew Akhavan, who began his transition into a role as the Mayhem's manager in March.
With only six players currently listed on the Mayhem roster, there is plenty of scouting and roster building to be done. The Mayhem can begin signing free agents October 8.
