Lightbulb Wolverines coach has apparently had enough: 'Lloyd Carr Retires as Michigan Head Coach'.




Quote:
Lloyd Carr apparently is set to call it a career at Michigan.

Carr will announce his retirement at a 10 a.m. press conference on Monday, ESPN reports. The news came just hours after the Wolverines lost, 14-3, to rival Ohio State.

A Michigan media relations spokeswoman denied the story, saying, "These are all rumors, just rumors."


The third-winningest coach in Michigan’s storied history, the 62-year-old Carr has received intense criticism in recent years for the Wolverines’ shortcomings in big games.

Michigan has dropped its last four contests against Ohio State and has lost six of its last seven meetings with the Buckeyes. Ohio State also posted a 42-39 victory last year in a showdown tabbed as the “Game of the Century.”

The Wolverines also have endured well-chronicled postseason struggles under Carr, losing each of their last four bowl games. Carr is 6-6 all-time against Ohio State and owns a 5-7 career record in bowl games, including 1-3 in the Rose Bowl.

Carr’s job security once again came into question two months ago when the Wolverines opened the season with consecutive losses at home to Appalachian State and Oregon.

It marked the first time Michigan started a season with back-to-back home losses since 1959, and Carr once again found himself on the proverbial coaching hot seat.

But speculation regarding Carr’s job status died down September 15 when the Wolverines posted a 38-0 rout of rival Notre Dame, a victory which jumpstarted an eight-game winning streak and vaulted Michigan back into the national rankings.

Carr owns a career record of 121-40 in his 12-plus seasons at Michigan. An assistant in Ann Arbor under Bo Schembechler and Gary Moeller, Carr has guided the Wolverines to at least a share of five Big Ten titles.


Carr’s crowning achievement came in 1997, when Michigan was named co-national champion after going 12-0 and closing out the campaign with a victory over Washington State in the Rose Bowl. The Wolverines were voted champions by the Associated Press, but Nebraska was voted No. 1 in the national coaches’ poll.

Then I dont think they had to contemplate hard or long.

Heard he was tired of the ratrace and didnt consider himself hanging around forever.

So if they asked him to go he was prob glad I think.

I think Bo dying took something out of him. He lost a huge ally and I am sure the bowl losses, losing to Ohio State and the Appy State loss were piling on.

Guy has had a nice career. He made some money and being a head football coach is a 12 month a year job at a major program like Michigan.

Default Carr Retirement From Michigan Confirmed




Quote:
In the chilly parking lot outside Schembechler Hall on Sunday night, reporters hovered around Lloyd Carr’s silver Lexus sport utility vehicle.

Carr had just made the inevitable a reality when he told his team in a players-only meeting that he was retiring at the end of the season.

And the question that hovered at dusk in Ann Arbor about one of college football’s hallmark programs resonated throughout the sport with the Heisman Trophy race, Bowl Championship Series standings and the coaching carousel — “What’s going to happen?”

The timing of Carr’s announcement, a day after the Wolverines lost to Ohio State for the sixth time in seven years but before the season ended, hints that he does not favor Louisiana State Coach Les Miles as his successor. If Michigan does decide to pursue Miles, it could set off an awkward tango.

Miles coaches the No. 1 team in the country, which is in line to play in the B.C.S. title game Jan. 7 if it beats Arkansas on Friday, then wins the Southeastern Conference championship game Dec. 1. That means Michigan would have to wait about seven weeks to name a new coach or Miles would have to announce he is leaving before his team played its postseason game.

Either way, the uncertainty will affect both programs’ recruiting.

Miles has not done anything to play down speculation that he wants the job. He is a Michigan graduate; he met his wife, Kathy, a former Wolverines assistant basketball coach, there; and he has a $1.25 million Michigan buyout in his contract. (The amount is $500,000 for any other program.)

In October, numerous friends of Miles’s said that he would consider the job. The most prominent and concise of those was the former Michigan quarterback John Wangler, who Miles said was his best friend.

“When and if the opportunity comes up, I think Les will consider it strongly,” Wangler said at the time. “I don’t think there’s reason to tap-dance around it. He’d have to look at it seriously.”

If Miles does take the job, it could set off a domino effect. His defensive coordinator at L.S.U., Bo Pelini, would be an in-house favorite to replace him there. But that job would also have a strong pool of candidates from colleges and the N.F.L.

If Miles does not get the Michigan job, the pool of candidates could include Stanford’s Jim Harbaugh; Wisconsin’s Bret Bielema; Cincinnati’s Brian Kelly; the Carolina Panthers’ defensive coordinator, Mike Trgovac, a former Michigan player; and the Wolverines’ defensive coordinator, Ron English.

The only other jobs officially open right now are Baylor, which fired Guy Morriss on Sunday, and Southern Methodist. Those have been two of the hardest jobs to win at recently in college football. Other possible openings, among teams in Bowl Championship Series conferences: Arkansas, Nebraska, Texas A&M, Washington State, U.C.L.A., Georgia Tech, Duke and Syracuse.

i always wonder what happened to lloyd.

he went from the best MI coach in history to a failure.

unlike the overrated Bo, Lloyd was able to win Bowl Games and beat Ohio State consistently.

than all of a sudden, they can't beat Ohio State or win Bowl Games?

recruiting? staff? the alumni forcing him to use the 70s playbook?

lloyd kicked SEC ass. won a national title. won big out of conference games.

second part of his career he was garbage. still baffling to me.
