Carr to Announce Retirement

Michigan has scheduled a 10 AM press conference for Monday to announce the retirement of head coach Lloyd Carr.

Carr coached the Wolverines to a 121-40 record over 13 seasons. Before being named head coach in 1995, Carr served as an assistant under Bo Schembechler for 15 years. Carr is third all time in conference winning percentage at .779 which puts him behind two other Michigan coaches, Bo Schembechler and Fielding Yost. Carr's greatest accomplishment came in 1997 when he lead the Wolverines to a National Championship and was named the NCAA Coach of the Year.

Carr will likely stay on and work in the athletic department and should play a prominent role in choosing his successor.
