MISSOULA, Mont. — Errol Mann, the kicker for the Oakland Raiders Super Bowl XI championship team, has died. He was 71.

Sunset Memorial Funeral Home says Mann died on April 11 at his home in Missoula.

Mann was born in Breckenridge, Minn., and played college football at the University of North Dakota. He spent a dozen years in the NFL and ended his time with the Detroit Lions as the team’s all-time scoring leader.

Mann then played for the Oakland Raiders, joining the 1976 team coached by John Madden that beat Minnesota 32-14 in Super Bowl XI. The next year, he led the NFL in scoring.

The Missoulian reports Mann lived in Missoula for the past 25 years and had worked as a financial broker.

He is survived by his wife, Lois.
