We don't even know a name for Washington DC's Overwatch League team yet, but they've already been busy making additions to the roster, and now they've announced that they've signed two more coaching staff as well.

In fact, the team has hired the first female coach for the league in the form of Kyoung Ey Molly 'Avalla' Kim from Meta Bellum, who joins new analyst Mikael 'mkL' Skjønhaug. Avalla has experience in the scene as head coach for Frescia Gaming, but here she'll serve the role of assistant coach.

"I'm happy to have Avalla and mkL join the coaching staff. They bring international experience and a great work ethic. Together, we're well on our way to building the best coaching staff in the league," said head coach Hyeong-seok 'WizardHyeong' Kim.

Are you glad to see the first female coach in the league?
