Retired As Coach

In 1979, after the 1978-179 season ended, Madden abruptly retired as coach of the Raiders. He was emotionally stressed and burned out. Madden had a bleeding ulcer and a strained relationship with his sons which he wanted to repair. Over the course of his coaching career with the Raiders, he posted a record of 103-32-7, with a.750 winning percentage. This marked the first time a head coach had spent ten years with the same team and had won more than 100 games. When he retired, Madden said he would never coach again.
