Lloyd Carr to Retire, Per ESPN

ESPN is apparently confirming a rumor that has been discussed for the past several weeks. Michigan's head coach, Lloyd Carr will be retiring after the football season. Carr has coached the Wolverines for the past 13 years and was the last hold over from Bo Schembechler era at Michigan.


Carr brought a National Championship to the program in 1997, and Michigan has been an incredibly solid and consistent team during his 13 years. But, for all that Michigan did accomplish, fans always were left wanting more and felt like they never lived up to the expectations and talent levels. It couldn't help that Jim Tressel has made 2 National Championship games, brought a title home and Ohio State has started to consistently out perform Michigan.

This does have some indirect effect on Texas, because it will likely affect the names in the A&M hiring and LSU's Les Miles may be the favorite for the job.
