Former N.C. State football coach Chuck Amato will undergo treatment for a cancerous spot located on his tonsil, N.C. State sports information director Annabelle Myers confirmed.
Doctors detected the cancer early, and a full recovery is expected.
Amato gave a statement to Myers after a Charlotte Observer and News & Observer reporter inquired about his health.
â€œI appreciate the concern and prayers so many people,â€ Amato said. â€œThe prognosis is optimistic, which is very encouraging, and with the grace of God and the support of my family and friends and the Wolfpack Nation, I will get through this.â€
Hopefully Coach Amato can have a speedy recovery and not suffer any sort of long-lasting problems associated with this cancerous spot.
Amato said he plans to continue his daily regiment and hopes to get a coaching job soon.
