James Walton has resigned as coach of the Billings Wolves indoor football team.
The Wolves, who will begin play in the Indoor Football League next February and play their homes games at Rimrock Auto Arena at MetraPark, named Walton as their coach in mid February. At the time Walton said he had no head coaching experience, but felt his approach to the game as a player would help him succeed.
Wolves general manager Marc Burr said Walton, a former star receiver with the now-defunct Billings Outlaws of the IFL, resigned in May to pursue other opportunities.
A release from the team said the Wolves are currently conducting interviews for a new coach. The team hopes to name a new coach in July or early August.
"The next guy will be a veteran of the game who wants to be here and wants to see Billings win championships," Burr said.
Burr added that on June 29, the Wolves become full members of the IFL and can begin signing players.
The Wolves will begin play in the Indoor Football League next February, with their home games at Rimrock Auto Arena at MetraPark.
