Football Hall of Famer John Madden has died at the age of 85, according to a statement from the NFL.
Madden died unexpectedly on Tuesday morning, according to the NFL.
“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,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement.
He was 103-32-7 as a coach for the Raiders.
Madden and Raiders won the Super Bowl in 1976.
“Few individuals meant as much to the growth and popularity of professional football as Coach Madden, whose impact on the game both on and off the field was immeasurable,” the Raiders said in a statement.
Madden never had a losing season in his coaching career.
After coaching, Madden became one of the most famous broadcasters in sports.
He was also the voice of one of the most successful video game franchises. The “Madden” NFL video game is the most popular football video game each year.
