Matthew "mCe" Elmore has replaced Alan "Shakezullah" Hardeman as the head coach of Chaos EC CS:GO according to an announcement made by the organization via Twitter.
After moving the CS:GO team to Arizona we realized how necessary it is to have all the players located on site.— Chaos EC (@ChaosEC) February 8, 2020
With this in mind @Shakezullah will be leaving the team to pursue a new project and we will be welcoming @MatthewCElmore as our new Coach!

Shakezullah has been with Chaos since September 2019. Shakezullah was released due to the inability for him to move to Arizona. Chaos headquartered in Arizona earlier this year, and that is where the rest of the team practices and competes.
mCe is the former coach of Rogue before the organization pulled out of CS:GO. He had been the coach of Triumph before joining Chaos.
The Chaos CS:GO roster is now:
- Ben "ben1337" Smith
- Owen "smooya" Butterfield
- Cameron "cam" Kern
- Joshua "steel" Nissan
- Anthony "vanity" Malaspina
- Matthew "mCe" Elmore (Coach)
Chaos hasn't had outstanding results in the 2020 season. They have competed in a number of qualifiers, but have yet to have a deep run or a qualification. Jared Fletcher, General Manager of Chaos, released a statement about the change via the Chaos website :
Originally, we had planned to transition Shakezullah and wippie to Arizona when we could make it work around their schedules (or visa availability in the case of wippie). The goal was to always have all of the players and staff living and playing together. My mistake was believing that would be alright knowing how the dynamic of some players being at a 24/7 facility and some playing from home plays out. This is definitely a necessity to push team growth forward.
