Former University of Alabama quarterback and Oakland Raiders great Kenny Stabler has passed away at the age of 69, The Tuscaloosa News has learned.

From Foley, where he starred at Foley High School, Stabler played for three seasons (1965-67) under legendary Alabama coach Paul W. “Bear” Bryant before becoming a second-round selection in the 1968 NFL Draft by Oakland.

Stabler led the Raiders to the 1977 Super Bowl title, and was a four-time Pro Bowl selection.


The Tuscaloosa News has retracted their report of Ken Stabler’s death at this time.

Preparing to report on an unconfirmed but wide and persistent rumor that former Alabama football player Kenny Stabler had died, tuscaloosanews.com inadvertently and briefly published an incomplete story that we were preparing in the event that the story was confirmed. At this time, it is not confirmed. Unfortunately, other news outlets used social media to share the report. We regret the error and any emotional distress caused to Stabler’s family, friends and fans.


Stabler's family confirms the legendary quarterback has died after he had been battling with stage 4 colon cancer since February, per USA TODAY.
