The newly-minted Team Reciprocity coach Shan ‘ShAnE’ McKerral recently revealed that he’d been coaching the UNILAD players since CWL Anaheim.
The veteran pro player has been in the scene since 2013 when he was one of the captains of Epsilon Esports, and was most recently seen competing in the United Kingdom National Circuit.
Prior to his National Circuit runs, ShAnE was seen with the now-disbanded Renegades EU when the team competed at the CWL Dallas and New Orleans Open events at the beginning of the 2018 season.
ShAnE made a surprise return to the scene this week when it was announced that he was the coach of Team Reciprocity for the upcoming Black Ops 4 season.
While the move may have come as a bit of a shock, it makes a lot more sense now that ShAnE revealed he’d been coaching UNILAD since CWL Anaheim in June. That UNILAD roster included the trio of Bradley ‘Wuskin’ Marshall, Sean ‘Seany’ O’Connor, and Zack ‘Zed’ Denyer who also signed with Team Reciprocity earlier this week.
I've been coaching the UNILAD CoD team since Anaheim behind closed doors where the players were kind enough to pay me out of their own salary
Just wanted to give a massive thank you to @ChadLarsson for his professionalism and making this the smoothest off-season ever!

Not only was he coaching the team “behind closed doors,” but the UNILAD players were actually kind enough to pay ShAnE out of their own salaries, something we haven’t ever witnessed in the Call of Duty scene. The work surely paid off since Team Reciprocity brought ShAnE on board for the upcoming season.
Sounding off in the replies, both Zed and Wusking made it clear that they were happy to have helped out their coach.
Team Reciprocity will make their debut at CWL Vegas in December and are expected to make the CWL Pro League for the Black Ops 4 Season.
