Oliver’s older brother, senior midfielder , is committed to Notre Dame in the Class of 2017, and Notre Dame also is the alma mater of their father, former collegiate and NFL quarterback Rick Mirer.

Rick Mirer acknowledged his younger son’s decision to follow his own path with a congratulatory tweet that included a “house divided” hashtag.
