"We are saddened to hear of the passing of Chiefs Hall of Famer E.J. Holub. He was one of the most fierce competitors in franchise history and was a star on both sides of the football. He was an instrumental part of the franchise's formative years, and he'll be remembered for his contributions to multiple AFL Championships and the club's victory in Super Bowl IV. Our hearts go out to his family. He will be greatly missed."
- Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt
