John Madden told Bay Area News Group-East Bay columnist Cam Inman Thursday he had no plans to become a consultant for the Raiders, nor was he planning on becoming involved in ownership.
“No, uh uh,” Madden replied when asked if he’s interested in becoming a consultant for the Raiders.
As for succeeding Davis and owning the Raiders: “No, uh uh. As an owner, no. As a fan, I’ll be able to go to more games.”
Which doesn’t mean Madden won’t have some influence. He considers Davis one of his closest friends and the two will have more time to talk. It’s just that with Madden turning 73, it was a pipe dream to think he would ever get into the fulltime grinder of NFL management _ especially since all his expertise was as a coach.
