NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Titans owner K.S. ''Bud'' Adams Jr. has died in his Houston home. He was 90.

The team announced Monday that Adams had died, saying he ''passed away peacefully from natural causes.''

The son of a prominent oil executive, Adams built his own energy fortune and used it to found the Houston Oilers in the upstart American Football League.

Adams moved the team to Tennessee after the 1996 season when he couldn't get the new stadium he wanted in Houston. The franchise, renamed the Titans, in 2000 reached the Super Bowl Adams had spent more than three decades pursuing.

Kenneth Stanley Adams Jr. was born in Bartlesville, Okla., to the future chief executive of Phillips Petroleum Co., K.S. ''Boots'' Adams.

His 409 wins were the most of any current NFL owner.
