Amato opens up to Sun Sports about the rise and fall of N.C. State, Coach Bowden – then and now.. his coaching values, personality and how he’s building relationships with these new players. He even shares comments on his favorite meal is stating “anything with red sauce.” In My Own Words: Chuck Amato premieres on Sun Sports Monday, April 23 at 7pm and again at 10pm with multiple encores throughout the month.
