"NFL Announces the Passing of John Madden"
Tue Dec-28-21 07:11 PM by LeroyBumpkin



Earlier today we received the sad news that the great John Madden died unexpectedly this morning.
He was 85.

“On behalf of the entire NFL family, we extend our condolences to Virginia, Mike, Joe and their
families,” said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. “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.

“Nobody loved football more than Coach. He was football. He was an incredible sounding board to
me and so many others. 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.”
Memorial service information will be announced when available.
