K.S. “Bud” Adams, the second-generation oil magnate who brought professional football to Houston in 1960 and, three decades later, spirited it away to Tennessee, has died. He was 90.
The passing was first reported by Brent Zwerneman of the San Antonio Express-News. A source said early indications are Adams’ death was of natural causes, but the source stressed the “early indications” aspect.
Adams will be remembered as one of the city’s earliest sports magnates as owner of the Oilers and a member of the so-called “Foolish Club” that, along with Dallas millionaire Lamar Hunt, created the upstart American Football League, and as one of the early investors in the Houston Sports Association group that brought the Colt .45s to Houston in 1962. His Oilers won the first two AFL titles in 1960 and 1961 and lost to Hunt’s Dallas Texans for the 1962 title.

"Cordell Broadus was offered by Notre Dame today," Diamond Bar (Calif.) High School coach Ryan Maine wrote on the football team's Twitter account.
