Al Davis Net Worth $500 Million

Al Davis (born July 4 1929) was an American self-made millionaire, who remains as the only American football executive to be an owner, commissioner, general manager, head coach and assistant coach in the history of the National Football League. He once served as the principle owner and the general manger of the Oakland Raiders of the NFL from 1972 – 2011. Sadly, he died in October 8, 2011 (aged 82) in Oakland, California.

“Just win it baby” was Davis’s motto for the team. Under his management, the Oakland Raiders became one the most successful football teams in professional sports. He was also an active civil rights activist, who wouldn’t let the Raiders participate in a match held in a city where white and black players had to stay in separate hotels. He is also recognized as the first NFL owner to sign up an African American head coach. He is also renowned to be the first owner to hire a female chief executive, and the second NFL owner to sign up a Latino head coach.

On July 1966, Davis resigned as the American Football League (AFL) commissioner and established a holding company known as the A.D Football, Inc. In 1972, he drafted a modified partnership agreement that not only made him the new managing general partner, but that also gave him near-absolute control over Oakland Raiders operations. In addition to serving as the owner of this football club, Davis also served as the general manager of Oakland Raiders until his death. At the time of his untimely death, Davis owned about 68% of the team. He was survived by his wife, Carol, and their son, Mark.

Besides his great success in managing one of the most successful football teams in professional sports, Davis also goes down the memory lane as one of the most influential and richest AFL owners of the 20th century. He made his wealth amounting to $500 million through his profession as a football coach for various teams, as an American Football League commissioner, as a general manager and head coach, and eventually the principal owner of the Oakland Raiders.
