HistoryEdit

During their first two years, the Fire Dogs went 9-7 and third in the league, yet it was their second season that proved to be a glorious year by winning the IPFL championship title. When the IPFL folded, the Fire Dogs joined the new National Indoor Football League as a charter member and won the inaugural Indoor Bowl against the Wyoming Cavalry. However, they couldn't repeat the same success in 2002. Afterwards, the franchise folded.

During the 1999 & 2000 IPFL seasons, the most notable member for the Fire Dogs was head coach/general manager/player(QB) John Fourcade, formerly of the NFL New Orleans Saints. Fourcade was followed as head coach in 2001 & 2002 by Irvin Favre, the late father of legendary Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre. Irvin Favre, who also was minority owner of the Fire Dogs, died of a heart attack while driving in December 2003.
