The Columbus Wardogs are a defunct af2 team that played their home games in the Columbus Civic Center in Columbus, Georgia from 2001 - 2004. The Wardogs became famous in 2001 and received a mention on ESPN as the first professional football team to finish a 16 game season winless. 2002 coaches were Bret Munsey and Rich Salzer.

The inactive club was sold during the summer of 2005 and renamed the Mississippi Headhunters after relocating to Biloxi, Mississippi. The team was not able to begin play in Biloxi due to damage to the Mississippi Coast Coliseum by Hurricane Katrina. The owner of the team, Greg Disotell, had planned on building a new 12,000-seat arena, called Jackson Sports Arena, for his team in Pearl, Mississippi (a suburb of Jackson) but he was not able to secure funding. The franchise continued to be dormant until it ceased to exist along with the rest of the AF2 following the 2009 season.
