John Madden ‘unexpectedly’ passed away Tuesday evening, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced in a press statement.

“There will never be another John Madden, and we will forever be indebted to him for all he did to make football and the NFL what it is today,” the statement added.

Right after his demise was announced, football lovers on Twitter flooded the 280-character platform with heart-touching messages and heavy tributes.

Founder of My Sports Update, Ari Meirov tweeted: “There aren’t enough words to describe the impact John Madden had to the NFL product. He was a legend as a coach. He was a legend as a broadcaster. And he changed the video game world forever. Hard pressed to find someone more influential to their sport than John Madden. RIP.”

Film director Igal Hecht tweeted: “John Madden you were the legend of the earth. Forever I see you you always so nice to the legend. You are the real bubba. God bless you.”
