Football Legend John Madden Passes Away at 85

Professional Football Corridor of Fame coach and soccer broadcaster John Madden has handed away at 85.

The NFL introduced the information Tuesday sharing that the previous Raiders coach died unexpectedly this morning.

“On behalf of the entire NFL family, we extend our condolences to Virginia, Mike, Joe and their families,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell stated in a press release. “We all know him as the Hall of Fame coach of the Oakland Raiders and broadcaster who worked for every major network, but more than anything, he was a devoted husband, father and grandfather.”

Madden was employed as Oakland Raider’s head coach in 1969 at the age of 32. Earlier than retiring from the sector, he led the crew to a 103-32-7 regular-season file and victory within the Tremendous Bowl after the 1976 season. He was shrined into the Professional Football Corridor of Fame in 2006, 28 years after teaching his closing sport. The Corridor of Famer gained much more notoriety as an NFL broadcaster and for the online game bearing his title, EA Sports activities’ “Madden NFL.”
