NFL legend Madden dies

Famed National Football League coach and commentator John Madden died unexpectedly on Tuesday at the age of 85, the NFL reported. Madden led the then-Oakland Raiders to their first Super Bowl victory over the Minnesota Vikings in 1977 and became a fixture as a beloved television analyst after retiring from coaching. “Nobody loved football more than Coach,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement. “There will never be another John Madden, and we will forever be indebted to him for all he did to make football and the NFL what it is today.” Madden, who went 103-32-7 in 10 seasons as Raiders coach from 1969-78, was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006.
