This month's Greenville-Pitt County Chamber of Commerce Power Luncheon will be a treat for sports fans.
East Carolina University's basketball coach Joe Dooley will be the featured guest on Tuesday, May 15. Back in April, the university announced that Dooley would lead the men's team, his second stint at the helm of the Pirates' program.
Here's more about Dooley:
