BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

New changes have been made in the Coliseum's search for a hotel developer Friday. One group is out.  Another group has 45 days to review a lease. 

Coliseum leaders initially targeted Broadwater View Partners to build their hotel. However, the Coliseum's director just confirmed the Broadwater group never made the $3 million deposit required and didn't request an extension. 

So, Coliseum executives ended those talks and are now meeting with a new development team. 

WLOX was told that group has until the end of July to determine whether it's interested in a lease to build a Coliseum hotel.  In April, Coliseum leaders told Harrison County supervisors they hoped to have a hotel built in the parking lot between the arena and the convention center by the fall of 2020.

We will continue to update this story as new details become available.
