Al Davis, the iconic owner of the Oakland Raiders who built a pro football team in his own image, moved it to Los Angeles and then back again, has died at age 82.

Davis is survived by his wife Carol and son Mark. He said in previous interviews his wife and son would inherit the Raiders upon his death, although in keeping with the secrecy inherent in the organization, little is known about how the club will function in terms of day-to-day operations
