On October 4, 2010, Bosselman Entertainment LLC announced the formation of Nebraska Danger as an expansion member of the Indoor Football League (IFL) for the 2011 season.[2] At the press conference, team owner Charlie Bosselman announced that Sean Ponder would be the team's inaugural head coach,[3] however after just two months on the job, Ponder left the Danger for personal reasons, and Mike Davis was named head coach.[4] On March 7, 2011, the Danger defeated the Wichita Wild 70–59, in the team's first game.[5]

On June 28, 2014, the Danger traveled to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, for a second-straight year looking to defeat the Storm for the United Bowl. The Danger came up short again, falling 46–63.[6][7]

On September 7, 2016, Hurtis Chinn was promoted to head coach after Mike Davis announced he was taking a role with the Saskatchewan Roughriders.[8]
