7-17-19, Trei Oliver, Head Football Coach, NC Central University

The guest speaker for our upcoming meeting will be Trei Oliver, Head Football Coach at North Carolina Central University. With 20 years of college coaching experience that includes five conference championships and three black college football national titles, Trei Oliver returned to his alma mater as North Carolina Central University’s 24th head football coach, the university announced on Dec. 13, 2018.

Oliver returned to NCCU as head coach after spending the previous three seasons (2016-18) as the defensive coordinator and safeties coach at Southern University. The Jaguars are coming off a
Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) West division championship and a trip to the SWAC championship game.

In the prior 15 seasons (2004-18) as a coach at four different universities, Oliver has been a part of only one season with fewer than seven wins. During that time, he has celebrated 124 victories for an average of more than eight triumphs per year and a winning percentage of .725.

Prior to Southern University, Oliver served as the outside linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator at North Carolina A&T State University from 2011-15, when the Aggies shared consecutive Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) championships in 2014 and 2015, and were declared the black college football national champions in his final campaign in Greensboro as winners of the Celebration Bowl with a 10-2 overall record.

In four seasons at Grambling State University from 2007-10 as the outside linebackers coach, recruiting coordinator and special teams coordinator, the Tigers earned two SWAC West division crowns, and won the SWAC championship game and a black college football national title in 2008 with an 11-2 record.

Oliver’s first coaching stint at NCCU was as a defensive backs and wide receivers coach, recruiting coordinator and special teams coordinator from 2003-06. The Eagles captured back-to-back CIAA championships with consecutive trips to the NCAA Division II playoffs in 2005 and 2006, and were crowned as the black college football national champions following an 11-1 season in 2006.

He and his wife Yvette, also an NCCU graduate, are the proud parents of a son, Reggie.
