Legendary coach and broadcaster John Madden will grace the cover of Madden NFL 23, the popular football video game, Electronic Arts announced Wednesday. 

Madden, who coached the Raiders for 10 seasons and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006, died in December at age 85.

He graced or shared the cover of the first 13 editions of the game, before Tennessee Titans running back Eddie George became the first athlete to get a solo cover in 2001.

“As someone who grew up loving football, playing in the suburbs of West Philly, it’s a full-circle moment to now be able to contribute to the culture of the sport by honoring an icon like John Madden, who has influenced generations of football fans through his passion for football and unmistakable energy, through my art,” said Chuck Styles, the artist who created the Madden NFL 23 cover.
