Wilton "zews" Prado joined Evil Geniuses as coach Friday

Zews will replace Chet "ImAPet" Singh after his departure from the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team April 4.

"Please join us in welcoming @Zews to the Evil Geniuses family!" Evil Geniuses wrote in its announcement. "With a long and illustrious history as both a pro player and a coach, Zews has his sights set on the #1 spot in the ESL Pro League and beyond."

Zews' career in Counter-Strike began in 2001 with the original game, when he competed as a player on several Brazilian teams. He transitioned to Source when that title came out, and then to Global Offensive in 2012. He began coaching in 2015 after three years as a Global Offensive player.

His second coaching position put him in charge of Luminosity during a performance peak. He went on to coach SK Gaming, then played a brief stint in the server for Immortals before returning to coaching with Team Liquid in 2016. He stayed on for two years before moving to MIBR, which has flagged of late. He left the Brazilian team in late March.
