Two months before competing in the season-ending Valorant Champions 2021 event in Berlin, Team Envy brought aboard a new coach Wednesday, adding Chet “Chet” Singh.
Chet most recently coached TSM, which failed in its bid to make it to the Valorant Champions. The 25-year-old American was in charge at TSM for five months after a six-month stint leading NRG.
Envy posted on Twitter, “A mastermind in game and on the timeline… Welcome the newest member of #NVVAL, Coach @chetsingh”

Chet replied to his new club, “excited to work with my boys,” and he added a thank you to TSM.

He takes over for Michael “Mikes” Hockom, who exited early this month. Mikes tweeted on Oct. 1, “After a 3 month period of waiting for a contract to be completed and a concerning lack of communication from the org on the matter, I will no longer be working with Envy going forward. I appreciate the team taking a chance on me when others wouldn’t.”
Before switching to Valorant, Chet was a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive coach for CLG, OpTic Gaming, NRG Esports, Evil Geniuses and 100 Thieves.
Envy are one of 12 teams with confirmed places at the Valorant Champions, joined by Gambit Esports, Sentinels, KRU Esports, Team Vikings, Keyd Stars, Acend, Fnatic, Vision Strikers, Crazy Raccoon, X10 Esports and Team Secret. The final four spots will be determined by last-chance qualifying events.
