A public memorial service for Hall of Fame football coach John Madden will take place next month, the NFL announced Friday.
“The Madden family has been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support during the difficult time following John Madden’s passing,” the NFL said in a tweet Friday morning.
The ceremony will be held Feb. 15 in Oakland, California, where Madden – who died Dec. 28 at age 85 – coached the Raiders from 1969 to 1978 before launching a successful three-decade broadcasting career.
