Calling it a “bold decision to take on a new challenge,” Overwatch star Kim “Rascal” Dong-jun announced his retirement from professional competition on Friday and said he wants to venture into coaching.

The 23-year-old South Korean, who has played for four Overwatch League teams, most recently the Philadelphia Fusion, was a member of two championship teams with the San Francisco Shock, in 2019 and 2020.

Rascal announced on Twitter, “I’ve made a bold decision to take on a new challenge based on what I’ve achieved. I’m confident to show you many things as a coach starting next year.”

The Fusion, who signed Rascal in March after several players endured visa issues, creating a roster shortage, posted on Twitter: “While we’re sad to see him go, we can’t thanks @Rascal enough for the positive energy and deep hero pools he brought to the Fusion this season.”

Rascal also played for the London Spitfire and the Dallas Fuel. His release from the Fuel in April 2018 raised eyebrows when the team’s owner, Mike Rufail, questioned Rascal’s commitment, saying “his unwillingness to communicate with the team while playing in recent matches became a large distraction.”
