Former Mavs Gaming head coach Jonah Edwards has agreed to a two-year deal with Magic Gaming, where he’ll reprise his role as head coach, league sources told DIMER.
Edwards will serve as head coach for a Magic team that finished one game out of a playoff berth. The Magic were coached last season by Jonah’s teammate on Pro-Am team Throwdown, DevGoss, who took over mid-season and lead the team to a winning record. Goss has indicated that he wants to become a player for season two, and such vacated his role with the Magic.
Edwards is a well-respected figure in the community, playing Pro-Am for years and becoming a leader in the community. The Mavs finished the season on the outside looking in, despite high preseason expectations after selecting Dimez with the first overall pick in the draft. Edwards announced his resignation after the season, part of an organizational overhaul that saw the organization revamp their esports personnel.
The Mavs protected Dimez and Dayfri from expansion before trading Dayfri to Wizards DG for the fourteenth overall pick in the 2019 entry draft. The Magic will pick ninth overall, last in the lottery. They protected UCManny and KingCamRoyalty
