​Johan 'CWoosH' Klingestedt is a player that we've seen on the Florida Mayhem roster in Season 1 of the Overwatch League, but now he's revealed on TwitLonger that he's retiring from being a pro player, and will now be a coach.

"Being a pro player has been so good to me and looking back at it all I'm very proud of what I've managed to do. A small kid from a small town in Sweden no one has heard of, traveling the world to play in front of fans that love the game as much as I do," he said.

"Being home in Sweden for to 2 months now has given me a lot of time to think this through. Giving up playing is rough but this is the 2nd best thing to me. I've worked as a teacher which I loved, and there are plenty of parallels between coaching and teaching. Being a former pro player gives me a lot of insight that other coaches may not have. Helping other aspiring players to play to the best of their ability and having answers to questions they may have."

Learn2Esport revealed on Twitter that CwoosH had joined them as a coach, helping students in preparing for playing on the big stage.

Are you sad to see him retire?
