NFL replay official Carl Madsen died Sunday on his way home from the game he just worked, the Kansas City Chiefs vs. Tennessee Titans in Nashville. He was 71.

No cause of death was given.

"Carl Madsen was an NFL officiating fixture for more than two decades, first as a highly respected on-field official before transitioning to a replay role beginning in 2009," NFL senior VP of officiating training and development Walt Anderson said in a statement. "A terrific friend and colleague, Carl's love of football and dedication to officiating was ever-present, as he generously shared his time to mentor young officials at clinics across the country. A veteran of the Air Force, Carl had a tremendous spirit and will be greatly missed."

Madsen spent the last 12 years as a replay official and 12 years as an on-field official before that.
