The Greater Wilmington Sports Hall Of Fame

Coach Bill Dooley Education Foundation

The Greater Wilmington Sports Hall of Fame is deeply honored to announce the establishment of the Coach Bill Dooley Education Endowment Fund.

Since its inception in 2006 the goal of the Greater Wilmington Sports Hall of Fame was to honor and recognize those who brought honor to the world of sport with ties to the Wilmington Area.

In 2007 the Bill Dooley Scholarship Program was established to honor Coach Bill Dooley, longtime award winning Atlantic Coast Conference Head Football Coach. Coach Dooley was one of the founding fathers of the Greater Wilmington Sports Hall of Fame (GWSHOF) and served as its inaugural Chairman in 2006.

The organization GWSHOF has honored 52 Inductees and awarded 47 Scholarships.

Coach Dooley passed away in August of 2016. The GWSHOF has set up an Endowment Fund in his honor to continue these scholarships in perpetuity.
