University of Michigan Video Clinic:
University of Michigan Staff
Coach Lloyd Carr and the University of Michigan staff has provided the Coaches Learning Network Membership an incredible coaching tool by sharing video of their 2006 and 2007 high school coaching clinics.
We can't express our gratitude enough to coach Carr and his staff for their willingness to provide this incredible resource. Coach Carr has to be especially recognized.
In 13 seasons as Michigan's head coach, Carr won over 120 games, five Big 10 Championships, a National Championship, has a 75% winning percentage, led the Wolverines to a bowl game each season, finished in the top 10 five times, and is the only Michigan coach ever to win four straight bowl games.
However, those facts tell just part of the Lloyd Carr story. A good indicator of the quality of a man is what he is willing to do for others while expecting nothing in return. Despite this being his last season, one filled with adversity, challenges and great excitement, his gracious act to contribute to the Coaches Learning Network demonstrates several of the qualities that has made him a great coach and a great man.
Again, we thank coach Carr and his staff for their support of coaches at all levels and for their generous contribution to the Coaches Learning Network.
