Adam ‘KiLLa’ Sloss has announced that he is a free agent for the Black Ops 4 season but is also willing to consider a switch to a coaching role.
The 2013 Call of Duty World Champion broke the news on Twitter, saying:
“F/A for blops4 but also considering good coaching offers so HMU”.
KiLLa fans were hoping to see the 25-year-old return to his winning ways when Call of Duty went back to boots-on-the-ground gameplay but his WWII season ended in disappointment.
After a number of lackluster placings and team changes at the start of the year, KiLLa was eventually suspended from all CWL competition in April, alongside a number of players, for account sharing.
The veteran player, who had been toying with the idea of retirement for a number of months, then made the decision to hang up his controller and quit competing.
It looks like he’s changed his mind, though, and the imminent release of Black Ops 4 on October 12 seems to be luring him back into the world of competitive Call of Duty.
Naturally, the former champion will be hoping to return as a player, but his reputation as a tactician and Search and Destroy master could mean that his coaching services could be in higher demand from the world’s top teams.
With teams like Evil Geniuses finding success with high profile coaches like Embry ‘Bevils’ Bevil, the coaching role in Call of Duty esports is likely to become a more important one during the Black Ops 4 season.
