"It's a shame," Holliday said. "He was a great guy, a great Son of Marshall. He did so much for our program in so many ways."
Marshall Athletics said in a release that Oliver "was one of Marshall's true legends."
“We lost a great Son of Marshall today and my heart is broken,” Marshall University President Jerome Gilbert said. “Reggie Oliver was a personal friend, a gentleman and an integral piece of the fabric that makes up Marshall’s story. Our MU family sends condolences to Reggie’s family, especially his mother, and to his many friends.”
