After leaving Immortals' roster, Wilton "zews" Prado will reportedly return to coaching as Team Liquid's new head coach, according to a Tweet from CS:GO insider Jarek “DeKay” Lewis.

While zews was a player in the 1.6 and Global Offensive eras, he turned to coaching in 2015 and led the current SK Gaming to victory at ESL One: Cologne 2016 as well as at DreamHack Austin 2016 and the MLG Major Championship: Columbus when they were playing as Luminosity Gaming.

Notably, the roster defeated Team Liquid 2-0 in the Grand Final of ESL One: Cologne after the American team became the first NA roster to ever make the Grand Final of a CS:GO major.

zews joined Immortals as a player shortly after SK's victory at Cologne, saying his heart lay behind the keyboard and not on the sidelines.

"Like most, the dream to play is always there," zews said in a statement. "After getting news that the Immortals players wanted me to lead them, that dream was rekindled instantly."

While zews and the Immortals were able to secure wins at Northern Arena 2016 and the iBUYPOWER Fall Invitational, they were eliminated in the group stages of both ELEAGUE Season 2 and the ESL Pro League Season 4 finals.

Playing might be the dream for zews, but in a Twitlonger posted after he left Immortals, the Brazilian pro said that his future would lie in coaching.
