COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – The Columbus Cottonmouths are on the market.

In a letter to the hockey team's season ticket holders, head coach and general manager Jerome Bechard revealed that longtime owners Wanda and Shelby Amos are looking to sell the franchise after 17 seasons.

In the letter, Bechard stated that the Amos family "struggled tremendously with this decision, but feel it is the right thing for them to do at this point in their lives."

Bechard has been tasked to find new ownership to keep the SPHL team in Columbus. He has been talking with local business leaders, investors, as well city officials regarding this transition.

"We are taking renewals to not only secure your seats for the upcoming season but to prove to the community and potential investors that we have a strong fan base to build on," Coach Bechard said.
