Quotes: Bob McNair on passing of Bud Adams

Posted Oct 21, 2013

Founder & CEO shared his thoughts and condolences onthe passing of Bud Adams.


“We are deeply saddened by the passing of Bud Adams.  We have been friends for over 30 years and our city has lost a great Houstonian.  Bud brought football to Houston as the city’s first professional sports venture.  As a founding member of the AFL, Bud had a vision, he saw the league through tough years and was instrumental in the AFL merging to become the NFL we know and love today.

Bud knew I had a passion for NFL ownership and helped me along the path towards where I am now.  In the early 1990s, he was vital in getting me involved with the NFL which eventually led to expansion.  We served on many of the same committees and boards throughout the years.  With all of his tireless work, he still managed to be a great family man. 

The NFL is better because of the contributions Bud made and he will be sorely missed.  We extend our sympathy to daughters Susan, Amy and the entire family.”
