William "Switchy" Locher, who previously coached Third Impact, announced that he is making a return to CS:GO yesterday, this time as the coach of Big Chillin.
Excited to announce my return for @esea S37 Premier with the @BigChillinInc boys@dvlcsgo @MunKlotz @MellohCS@XzenCSGO@Elk_CS— will ✨ (@switchyqq) May 3, 2021
Their mentality and dedication is something else, excited to work with them and prove ourselves this season
Big Chillin finished third in ESEA Advanced Season 36, then promptly tore through the ESEA Premier Season 36 Relegation bracket to secure a Premier slot for Season 37 with a 2-0 win over PDHM and a 2-1 win over Levitate, both of whom would eventually secure their own spots in Premier from the lower bracket.
Switchy had this to say about the move:
[Since] leaving Third Impact [when] they made Premier, Big Chillin was the first team I trialed with where it felt natural. I knew that they would not just go through the motions and would put in just as much effort as I do, having watched the team for a few seasons now. A team's atmosphere is the biggest condition on me joining, and it felt like I meshed with the team the moment I hopped in for my trial.
I could tell that the entire roster is extremely dedicated and willing to learn, the mechanical talent is there as well. I feel confident organizing the puzzle pieces for the team to be successful as the problems are presented to us in-game, no matter who we are facing moving forward.
Big Chillin are now:
- Matt "dvl" Buechel
- Michael "Munk" Klotz
- Blake "Elk" Swinson
- Brendan "Melloh" Mello
- Devin "Xzen" Barber
- William "Switchy" Locher (Coach)
Big Chillin will make their ESEA Premier debut tomorrow night at 9PM EDT against Secret Club.
