Tennessee Titans owner K.S. "Bud" Adams died Monday in Houston. He was 90.
Adams owned the Houston Oilers since their debut in the AFL in 1960, through their move to Memphis in 1997 and then Nashville, where they became the Tennessee Titans.
Adams and Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson were the last surviving original AFL owners. Adams' Oilers won AFL titles in 1960 and '61.
The Oilers were the first football team to play indoors at the Houston Astrodome. They played there until their controversial move to Tennessee. The Titans reached the Super Bowl in the 1999 season.
Adams also owned the Houston Mavericks of the ABA from 1967-69 and the Nashville Kats of the Arena League from 2001-07.
He is survived by two daughters and seven grandchildren.
