Kenneth Stanley “Bud” Adams Jr., the Tennessee Titans owner who has been a significant figure in professional football for more than half a century, has died at the age of 90.

Adams, who founded the Houston Oilers at the outset of the American Football League, had owned his franchise longer than any other current NFL owner, a few months ahead of fellow AFL originator Ralph Wilson of the Bills. Adams owned the team in Houston from 1960 until 1996, then moved the franchise to Tennessee in 1997.

Multiple media outlets reported on Monday morning that Adams has died of natural causes.
