ACC Commissioner John Swofford on the passing of Bill Dooley

“Bill Dooley had a profound impact on so many of us who played for him.  He was, pure and simple, a football coach in the truest sense.  He leaves a lasting legacy on the players he coached, the schools he represented, the Atlantic Coast Conference and the sport of college football.  I was fortunate to have him as a part of my life for over four decades – as a coach,  colleague and friend.  Our thoughts and prayers will remain with Marie and the entire Dooley family.”
-- ACC Commissioner John D. Swofford
