Commentator Jason “Moses” O’Toole has been hired by Team Liquid as the team’s new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive head coach, the organization announced Sunday.
Moses will arrive to a changing roster as Team Liquid is replacing veteran leader Nicholas “Nitr0” Cannella with 19-year-old up-and-comer Michael “Grim” Wince. The decision to make changes came during the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive summer player break, which spanned the majority of July and early August.
“It’s exciting going into that next stage of, ‘what can you do now as a coach?'” Moses said in a video released by Liquid announcing the move. “You’ve been a player. You’ve been a commentator. What can you do when you’re leading a team? That’s the challenge that really, more than anything, inspired me to take this on.”
Moses will step away from his commentary role to become a coach for the first time.
As a caster, Moses became one of the most popular to brace the mic in the scene’s modern history. He casted numerous finals at Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Valve-designated Majors, often paired with Danish commentator Anders Blume and American caster Auguste “Semmler” Massonnat. For a period in time in Counter-Strike, those three formed the most high-profile casting trio at nearly every big event.
