History

The franchise was announced at an official press conference that was held on August 23, 2018, at the Tucson Convention Center. [1] [2] The team announced Marcus Coleman as its first head coach on September 12, 2018. [3] The team name was revealed on September 20, 2018, after a name-the-team contest originating from the local tradition of creating sugar skulls for Día de Muertos ( Day of the Dead) and the Roman Catholic holiday of All Souls Day.
