The Fury began life as the Corpus Christi Hammerheads, a charter member of the Intense Football League. The Hammerheads are coached by ex-University of Houston QB and former IFL star Jason McKinley, son of former NFL player Bob McKinley, and led by a strong supporting cast of players such as quarterback Wes Cooper, wide receiver Shomari Buchanan, tight end Matt Ross, and linebackers Roy Salas and DeAndrae Filmore. They played their home games at the Memorial Coliseum in 2004 and at the American Bank Center in 2005 and 2006, both of which are in Corpus Christi, Texas.

The team did not return to the American Bank Center for 2007 after the arena decided not to renew the team's lease.[1] Plus, it was the home of the af2 team, the Corpus Christi Sharks. In 2007, the Hammerheads played in the Central Pavilion Arena in nearby Robstown, Texas. [2]. In 2008 the coaching staff of Jason McKinley, John Fourcade and Rich Salzer guided the Hammerheads back to the Intense Football League's title game only to lose 65-36 in Lake Charles, Louisiana to the Louisiana Swashbucklers. After the Sharks folded following the 2009 season the Hammerheads announced they were returning to the American Bank Center for the upcoming 2010 season.[2]

Logo as the Corpus Christi Hammerheads

For the 2011 season, the Hammerheads joined the Southern Indoor Football League. Finishing at 7-5, the Hammerheads lost to the Louisiana Swashbucklers in the first round of the playoffs. After the 2011 season, the Hammerheads left the SIFL to help start the Lone Star Football League.

The team was removed from the Lone Star Football League following the 2012 season. For 2013, the team will play in the Ultimate Indoor Football League and have taken up the Fury name and identity (the logos were originally designed for a proposed 2012 UIFL expansion team, the Danville Dragons.)

After falling to the Florida Tarpons in Ultimate Bowl III, the Fury returned to the Ultimate Bowl in 2014, this team defeating the Tarpons 60-23 to claim their first championship in franchise history.[3]

On October 1, 2015, the Fury joined American Indoor Football.[4]
