The great John Madden died at the age of 85 but his career is not all about the video game.
His first season he coached professionally went 12-1-1 in his first year as head coach. Madden never had a losing season as a coach, and his overall win percentage is second in league history at .759. The worst season of his career was a 9-7 record, which speaks for itself.
Madden’s origins in coaching started when he got injured in college. While injured, he would see film and teach his fellow players of plays and strategies.
He then became an assistant college football coach at Allan Hancock College and then he went to San Diego State.
He went to professional football, when he was hired by Al Davis at the Oakland Raiders and the rest was history.
