Heroic Terminates Head Coach Contract After He 'Revealed Team Strategies'

Heroic Terminates Head Coach Contract After He 'Revealed Team Strategies'

Heroic has officially confirmed that they have terminated the contract of (now former) Head Coach Nicolai "HUNDEN" Petersen, after it has surfaced that he leaked "sensitive information" from a strategic playbook to opponents.

With a string of gold medals, silverware, and game-changing in-game adaptations, HUNDEN's portfolio is one that glows from the outside and has attracted interest from some top-tier organisations as his contract with Heroic begun to wind down.

However, the coach has now had his status removed, as Heroic released a statement stating that the unapproved sharing of an anti-strat play with opponents was "a clear breach of Mr. Petersen’s contract."

Heroic Terminate HUNDEN's Contract

Taking to social media, the organisation, that currently sits at number seven in the world (according to HLTV rankings) in CS:GO, has confirmed the Head Coach will no longer be a part of the team.

The statement reads "The Heroic team is shocked by Nicolai’s actions and deeply saddened by the way he has let his teammates down, especially given the difficult decision we took to give him a second chance after the coach bug suspension. His actions go against everything we stand for at Heroic."

The removal of HUNDEN comes after Heroic stood by the Head Coach following a previous ban. The Head Coach was one of many that faced suspensions due to a coaching bug exploit. ESIC charged Petersen with a 12-month ban in September 2020, although that was soon reduced to eight months due to his cooperation.

Heroic was one of the very few organisations that kept their Head Coach following the ban, allowing him to work with the team in non-competitive environments.

HUNDEN Stands By Decision To Discuss Anti-Strats With Opposition

Despite his removal from Heroic, HUNDEN has since backed his decision to discuss the strategies with opponents, claiming that "knowledge sharing is essential for me as a coach."

The 30-year-old retired professional continued to say "At no point in time has Heroic's own tactics been shared or discussed", before confirming he will continue to cooperate with ESIC in yet another investigation against his name.

HUNDEN was previously a target for Astralis, who have started a rebuild job following the departure of AWPer Nicolai "dev1ce" Reedtz and rumours that their own Head Coach, Danny "zonic" Sørensen, could be the next to leave.
