Overwatch League team London Spitfire claimed victory in Stage 1 of the competition last month, but now in Stage 2 the team has announced that they'll be parting ways with their coach Beom-joon 'Bishop' Lee, although the circumstances surrounding this seem to be shrouded in mystery.

The announcement came on the team's official website, where Spitfire wrote the following:

"London Spitfire has today parted ways with coach Beom-joon "Bishop" Lee. Bishop was instrumental in the formation of the Spitfire line-up, finding two of the world's best Overwatch rosters, GC Busan and KongDoo Panthera, and fusing them into a single unit which was crowned Overwatch League Stage 1 champions."

"We would like to thank Bishop for his contribution to London Spitfire and wish him all the best with his future endeavors. Our new coaching structure will be announced in due course."

Even in Bishop's own Twitter post, however, we don't have an explanation for what happened, as all he wrote was: "Unfortunate to have to leave mid-season like this, but @Cloud9 @Spitfire and I have agreed to part ways here! Looking for a new team in the meanwhile, so hope to see everyone soon."

While we don't know why the two parties have split, we do know that Bishop had a lot of success with the team, especially considering this Stage 1 victory. Are you Spitfire fans sad to see him go?
