Hall of Fame football coach-turned-legendary sports commentator John Madden has put the 2,000-square-foot co-op he owns at the Dakota on the market for $4.9 million. According to the Wall Street Journal, Madden, who now lives primarily in the San Francisco Bay Area, purchased the five-room apartment for $625,000 in 1985, from comedian Gilda Radner, who had paid just $150,000 for it during the late 1970s. The Central Park West maisonette, at 72nd Street, has original moldings, two fireplaces and a rare, private entrance off of the storied building’s interior courtyard. Madden, 75, retired as a full-time announcer in 2009, though he still appears regularly on a daily radio show in San Francisco, and is selling because he and his family no longer spend much time in New York City. Dolly Lenz of Prudential Douglas Elliman has the listing. [WSJ]
