About John Earl Madden

Former American professional football player, football coach and sportscaster, John Madden has an estimated net worth of $200 million. Madden began coaching after an aborted career as a professional football player -- he was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles, but never made the active roster because of an early knee injury.

John Madden coached the Oakland Raiders to victory in Super Bowl XI and went on to become one of America's best-known football announcers. He had short stints coaching in California at Hancock Junior College between 1960 to 1964 and San Diego State from 1964 to 1966 before landing a job as an assistant with the Oakland Raiders of the National Football League in 1967. Madden became head coach in 1969 and stayed in the job through the 1978 season. His Raiders won Super Bowl XI in 1977, defeating the Minnesota Vikings by a score of 32-14. Madden's overall record with the Raiders was 103-32-7, giving him the highest winning percentage of any NFL coach.

In 1980 Madden turned his talents to broadcasting, and spent the next three decades as an NFL color commentator for CBS, Fox, ABC and NBC, becoming known for his eager exclamations of "gosh" and "boom!" and his goofy sense of humor. Madden's amiable personality led to a career beyond the arena of football; he has published several books and appeared in dozens of television commercials. He also lent his name to a fast-paced home video game, Madden NFL Football, which was updated each year and became the best-selling sports video game of all time. Madden was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a head coach in 2006. He announced his retirement from broadcasting on 16 April 2009, saying "It's time."
