Franchise history

The Columbus Riverdragons franchise from Columbus, Georgiamarker was awarded to the city of Austin, Texasmarker in mid-2005 and the new name was unveiled on August 10, 2005. The Toros began play during the 2005-2006 season. Their official colors were originally red, blue, and gold. The Toros name is currently the only NBA-associated team and first D-League team to possess a nickname of Spanish origin. Along with the Asheville Altitude and the Huntsville Flight sold to Southwest Basketball, LLC, the Columbus Riverdragons moved to Austin in 2005.

On February 22, 2007, head coach Dennis Johnson died of an apparent heart attack after a workout with his players. After an interim coach guided the team for the rest of that season, Quin Snyder was named as the team's head coach for 2007-08.
