In the second of two explosive announcements, the Dallas Fuel have released assistant coach Louis “Tikatee” Lebel-Wong. Tikatee had a few more months left in his contract, but has since parted ways with the team as of Monday, August 3.
The announcement comes on the heels of the organization’s release of star DPS Decay.
On his personal twitter account, Tikatee stated that leaving was not his choice, and he intends to return to the league “in full force.” At time of writing, Tikatee has not released a full statement, though has said he intends to do so.
Still collecting my thoughts about being released, I will make a statement later this week for anyone interested. This was not my decision and I plan to return to the League in full force.
Thank you all for your support!
