Talks about former Dallas Fuel Head Coach, Kyle ‘KyKy’ Souder joining their Texan rivals, Houston Outlaws gained traction today as he was spotted in the Outlaws’ dugout in the team’s Focus video.
First spotted on Reddit/CompetitiveOverwatch, KyKy’s face and heavily-tattooed arm was blurred in other scenes. However this one stood out;
Our guess is that he is already unofficially an assistant coach for Houston Outlaws but due to some technicalities, isn’t allowed to announce that move just yet. By joining the Outlaws, he reunites with the players he coached during the Overwatch World Cup 2017 including Jake, Coolmat and Rawkus. One of his more recent tweets did allude to his next move;
With that being said, I intend to continue my work in OWL, absorb all my criticisms, fix my mistakes, and push for a championship in this season or the next. For those that have continued to believe in me up until this point, I love you guys. More on my future will come soon.

Whatever it is, we sincerely hope KyKy finds his footing and if it is with the Outlaws, then good for him. We can never say no to more drama from the Overwatch League.
