Is the 2007 Season Carr's Last at Michigan?

Indications are growing that Lloyd Carr, 61, is preparing to step down as Michigan coach after the 2007 season. Jim Carty of the Ann Arbor News reports on a slight change in language in Carr's contract that is fueling speculation. Carr's past contracts have promised a $300,000 bonus if he is employed as Wolverine coach on July 1. The new language simply that states that Carr be employed by the university in any capacity until July 1, 2008. Carr was unavailable for comment, but athletic director Bill Martin acknowledged that he has discussed retirement with Carr. The 2007 Wolverines will be senior heavy, and Carr has faced increasing criticism for his inability to beat Ohio State and win bowl games.
