John Madden, the legendary sportscaster and football coach, died “unexpectedly” Tuesday morning, the NFL said. He was 85. 

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell extended condolences to Madden’s family. 

“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,” Goodell said in a statement Tuesday.
