The Central Valley Coyotes were a professional arena football team and were a charter member of Arena Football 1. As the newly forming af1 set aside its plans for a two tier league and began focusing only on bigger markets, Central Valley stepped down and tried to play in a league which was more friendly to smaller markets; such as the Indoor Football League or the AIFA.

The team began as a 2002 expansion member of the af2, known as the original Bakersfield Blitz until 2004. They played their home games at Selland Arena in Fresno, California (With the exception of two home games during the 2008 season which were played at the Save Mart Center due to construction). The Central Valley Coyotes were in discussions with Indoor Football League Commissioner Tommy Benezio about possibly joining the Indoor Football League in 2011. However, those plans failed and the team ceased operations in December 2010.
