CORPUS CHRISTI - After nine seasons, nearly half a dozen different leagues and a trio of different home arenas the Corpus Christi Hammerheads are no more. Owner Chad Dittman has shut off his most recent cell phone number, and former staffers close to the team say the Hammerheads are finished.
But that doesn't mean Arena Football is gone, enter the Corpus Christi Fury who will make their debut in March as member of the Ultimate Indoor Football League. The team will call the American Bank Center home, and the league will include teams from Georgia and Florida amongst other states. That means less bus trips, and more plan rides.
The Fury will hold its first official press conference on Thursday afternoon to announce their coach and a few players. You can expect to hear several familiar names, both on the roster and within the front office staff.
