The Hitmen entered their first season playing in the newly formed Central Division, and were predicted to finish as high as third in the five-team division.[11] Instead, they finished as the second-worst regular season team in the league, posting an 18513 record.[12] The Hitmen lost CAD$250,000 in their first season and saw their season ticket base halved to 700 for the 199697 season. The losses lead to questions about the viability of the club.[13]
Citing personal reasons, James stunned the organization when he resigned as coach and general manager on September 5, 1996.[14][15] Two days later, the Calgary Police Service revealed that James was being investigated on allegations he sexually abused two former players while he was with the Swift Current Broncos.[16] James was charged, and in January 1997 pled guilty to two counts of sexual assault.[17] Upon James' conviction, and sentencing to 3 years in prison, the Hitmen attempted to distance themselves from their former coach.[18]
