Who will Carr's departure affect?

BY DANIEL BROMWICH

Signs yesterday's announcement was coming started as early as last December.
Michigan coach Lloyd Carr signed an addendum to his contract allowing him to collect $300,000 as long as he was employed by Michigan "in any capacity," regardless of whether or not he remained the head football coach. Previously, the contract mandated Carr still hold the position of head football coach in order to receive the compensation.
Another signal came last March. Carr's current coaching staff signed two-year extensions, guaranteeing they would be paid through 2009.

Coach won, lost with integrity

BY JACK HERMAN

Correction appended: Due to an editing error, the sentence "In fact, caught up in his emotions the day of Moeller's resignation, he declared he would not accept the top job," originally omitted the "not".
The first question asked to Michigan coach Lloyd Carr after he announced his retirement in a press conference yesterday was how he thought the public should judge his time in Ann Arbor.
"I didn't come here to discuss my legacy," Carr said.

Scott Bell: Carr's contributions extended beyond the field

The Lloyd Carr era is officially over.
Some people are probably rejoicing - and judging by the comments on our website and letters to the editor we received last night, maybe "some" should probably be switched to "most."
But even though he may ultimately be remembered as the guy who couldn't topple Jim Tressel and Ohio State's evil empire in the late stages of his career, Carr's time at Michigan has been anything but unsuccessful.

Injuries pain senior stars in loss

BY DANIEL BROMWICH

Losing to Ohio State always hurts.
But for a senior quarterback with a separated shoulder and a senior running back with a bad high ankle sprain, the pain had to be nearly unbearable.
"I think they were in a lot of discomfort," Michigan coach Lloyd Carr said. "(Quarterback) Chad (Henne) got hit and knocked down once, I'm not exactly sure where it was, but from then on, he was hurting. The same thing happened to (running back) Mike (Hart).
"I wasn't in their shoes, but it was pretty obvious there was some discomfort there."

Detroit native sparks Blue's offensive woes

Ohio State defensive end Vernon Gholston stood at midfield as the two teams filed off the field.
He had every right to take a breather after abusing the Michigan offensive line to the tune of three sacks, but he had one last sprint left in him.
After giving a brief postgame interview, the Detroit native took off to the southwest corner of Michigan Stadium to celebrate with the Buckeye band and the rest of his team.
Gholston's performance was just a sample size of the pressure Wolverine quarterback Chad Henne faced from the Buckeye defense.

O-for-4: 'M' falls to Bucks again

BY JACK HERMAN

Michigan's all-time leading passer returned from injury to play with Michigan's all-time leading rusher in an attempt to cement their legacies in front of Michigan's all-time second largest crowd.
But in their final game at Michigan Stadium, a group of the Wolverines' finest seniors failed once again to do what it couldn't do three times before. And coaching his final game in the rivalry, Michigan coach Lloyd Carr failed once again to top Ohio State coach Jim Tressel.

Players saddened by Carr's departure

BY DANIEL BROMWICH

It began the same way team meetings normally do after losses.
Michigan coach Lloyd Carr walked into the meeting yesterday afternoon, and instead of greeting their coach the way they do after wins - with clapping and cheering - the Wolverines were silent.
But that's not what Carr wanted.
"Did somebody die or something?" Carr asked, according to those in the meeting, which was closed to the media. "I'm going to try this again. I want you guys to act like you have a heartbeat."
