Tampa Bay Storm has new ownership group

TAMPA — The Storm resumes play tonight after a yearlong hiatus with new owners.

According to an open letter to fans that appeared on the team's Web site, new team president and managing partner Todd Boren lists Michael O'Quinn, Steven Jones and Robert Dison as fellow partners who recently acquired the Storm.

The Arena Football League previously owned this second incarnation of the Storm. The original went out of business when the league suspended play after the 2008 season.

According to the letter, the partners "bring over a decade of successful ownership and management experience in the AFL to the table." Media relations director Jim Robinson said the partners have been part of ownership groups for the Arizona Rattlers and Orlando Predators.

The partners had no comment Thursday, and Robinson said the official announcement will come tonight during halftime of the preseason game against the Orlando Predators at the St. Pete Times Forum.
