Ex-Michigan coach Lloyd Carr elected to College Football Hall of Fame

By Michael Rothstein

Lloyd Carr is going into the College Football Hall of Fame.

Carr, who compiled a 122-40 record in 13 years as Michigan’s head coach, will be part of the Class of 2011 inducted Dec. 6 in New York.

Toward the end of the gala dinner Saturday for the Griese/Hutchinson/Woodson Champions for Children's Hearts Weekend in Ann Arbor, former Michigan quarterback Brian Griese announced to the packed Al Glick Fieldhouse that Carr would be inducted. Griese quarterbacked the Carr-coached 1997 Michigan national championship team. Carr coached Michigan from 1995 to 2007.

The 2011 College Football Hall of Fame ballot was released March 7, and it included 79 players and nine coaches. The complete final list of who will join Carr in this year's class will be announced this month.

Also, the Al Glick family donated $3 million to renovate Schembechler Hall.

I am so unbelievably proud of this man and the image he presents to college athletics. As a coach and mentor of young men, you stand for class and integrity. The University, Mott, and anything or anyone else you are associated with is better because of you. Thank you Coach Lloyd Carr. You are the epitome of a Michigan Man.
