Rawkus Ousted As Head Coach Of Sentinels’ VALORANT Team

Shane “Rawkus” Flaherty recently announced he would no longer be the head coach of Sentinels’ VALORANT team. According to Dot Esports, this decision comes as a result of “buyout complications.”

After FaZe Clan was defeated in the VCT Last Chance Qualifier last year, Sentinels “worked out an agreement to ‘borrow’ [him]” from the gaming company. Sentinels was in talks with FaZe to sign Rawkus fully, but the two sides ultimately failed to reach a compromise.

Rawkus is still contracted under FaZe. However, there are “no intentions from either side to be a part [sic] of the [FaZe] team again.” This has given Rawkus the option to explore a return to the professional VALORANT scene as a player rather than a coach.

Rawkus has a short yet storied history as a pro VALORANT player. During his playing career from 2020 to 2021, he helped lead FaZe Clan to a first-place finish in the VCT 2021: North America Stage 1 Challengers 3 tournament.
