Corey Reed Sr. passed away on Wednesday morning after complications with COVID-19. He was 43 years old.
“My deepest condolences go out to Corey and his entire family,” Louisville head coach Scott Satterfield said in a statement. “This horrible virus has affected so many people, and it’s even more difficult when it touches someone in the U of L football family.
