John Madden Retiring from NFL Broadcasting; Collinsworth Named as SNF Replacement

johnmadden-041609Veteran football broadcaster and former head coach of the Oakland Raiders, John Madden, is retiring:

“It’s time,” Madden said in a statement. “I’m 73 years old. My 50th wedding anniversary is this fall. I have two great sons and their families and my five grandchildren are at an age now when they know when I’m home and, more importantly, when I’m not.

“It’s been such a great ride. … the NFL has been my life for more than 40 years, it has been my passion — it still is.”

Madden has been an NFL broadcast for 30 years, most recently joining NBC in 2006 to call games alongside Al Michaels for Sunday Night Football.  Before that, in 2002, Madden called games for Monday Night Football on ABC–also with Michaels.

NBC Sports Chairman Dick Ebersol announced that Chris Collinsworth will replace Madden.
