Former Michigan head coach Lloyd Carr will have the Michigan Stadium tunnel named in his honor before Michigan’s Oct. 15 game against Penn State.

Carr will be honored in conjunction with the 25th anniversary of Michigan’s undefeated 1997 AP national championship team, which will be honored at halftime.

Carr went 122-44 in 13 seasons, winning five Big Ten championships (1997-1998, 2000, 2003-2004), and also winning the AFCA Coach of the Year, Walter Camp Coach of the Year, George Munger Award and Paul “Bear” Bryant awards in 1997. He won the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year in 2007, which was his last year.

Carr went into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2011 and the Michigan’s Hall of Honor in 2015.

Before he was the head coach of Michigan, Carr was the defensive backs coach from 1980-1986.

He became defensive coordinator in 1987 and  served in that duty until 1995, when he was named interim head coach after Gary Moeller had to resign due to an off-field incident.

Carr posted a 5-4 record against Notre Dame, a 10-3 record against Michigan State, a 6-7 record against Ohio State and a 9-2 record against Penn State.

He never had a losing season and the only time that Michigan finished the season outside the Top 25 was in 2005.
