The Philadelphia Fusion have parted ways with head coach Paxton “Eqo” Schofield, who has been with the team for the past eight seasons. The team announced on Saturday the termination of a “mutual separation” between Eqo and the Fusion. He will continue to coach the team through this season, although the Fusion are seeking a replacement coach in the coming weeks.

The Fusion released the following statement regarding Eqo’s departure:

Paxton Eqo, the head coach of the Philadelphia Fusion has officially left the team, after a mutually acceptable parting of ways between both parties. “Paxton, as a player and as a coach, did an unbelievable job leading this team to a place it has never been before and made a huge impact on this league’s culture. We wish him all the best on the next phase of his professional career,” Fusion general manager Kendrick Paladino said.

The Fusion only have one more tournament left before the start of the 2020 season — the first-ever Overwatch League playoffs on September 1st in Atlanta, Georgia. The team recently signed Torbjörn Reinhardt, which brings some stability to a team that saw its roster undergo significant changes during the Overwatch League offseason.
