On August 23, 1995, Coach Bill Dooley, one of the “winningest” coaches in the Atlantic Coast Conference history, invited Athletic Directors, Coaches and Representatives from the University of North Carolina, Duke, North Carolina Central and North Carolina State University to join him and NC Governor, Jim Hunt, at the State Capitol Old Senate Chambers. It was at that meeting that the universities pledged their support to the newly formed NFFCHOF Chapter and its mission. Since its inception, Executive Director Bill Dooley has worked to promote chapter growth. In 2012 East Carolina University joined the Chapter. In 2014, the NFFCHOF Board of Directors unanimously voted to name the chapter after its founder. Today the Bill Dooley Chapter ranks as the largest in the country!

Each year the Chapter awards up to 38 scholarships to high school football student athletes in Wake, Orange, Durham and Pitt counties. This year is the 20th year of honoring these young men.
