Today Overwatch League team Shanghai Dragons announced that head coach, Chen "U4" Congshan, will step down effective immediately. He will remain on board for one more week due to transitional purposes. Assistant coach Sun Jun Young "Kong" will stand-in as head coach for the time being.

Shanghai fans - and Overwatch League fans in general - are desperate to see Shanghai win at least one game. Drastic changes like these seem like the right avenue for the team to take, especially while waiting for their new acquisitions to be cleared to finally come to America to compete.
Good, he was way too hard on them and it never showed. I heard he had them practicing for more than 9 hours everyday and I feel like with a new coach hopefully the players will have a better coach and start winning some games.— 햎햆햓 (@KM_Kronoxus) March 6, 2018
