Former North Carolina AT&T assistant coach Trei Oliver has been named Southern University's new defensive coordinator.

Oliver helped lead NC AT&T to a 2015 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference title and a 41-34 win over Alcorn State. Oliver spent four seasons with the Aggies, where he served as the outside linebackers coach. 

Oliver served as the outside linebackers coach and special teams and recruiting coordinator for SWAC rival Grambling from 2007 to 2011.

From 2003 to 2007, Oliver was an assistant at N.C. Central, where he played his collegiate football as a defensive back. 

He ranks among the best all-time in passes defended with 31 and was a member of the Eagles’ 1996 secondary that led the nation in pass defense.
