The tunnel at Michigan Stadium was officially renamed and dedicated on Friday before the Penn State game in Ann Arbor following a board of regents resolution in September to honor retired coach Lloyd Carr.
The Big House’s facade features a sign that reads “Lloyd Carr tunnel” in large letters. Carr saw the first-quarter tribute to the 1997 National Championship squad during the Penn State game. Carr was joined by Charles Woodson, Warde Manuel, Jay Feely, and others during the brief in-game celebration.
Between 1995 and 2007, Carr coached the Wolverines to 120 victories, including a 1997 national championship and five Big Ten Conference titles. In terms of victories at Michigan, Carr is only behind Bo Schembechler and Fielding Yost.
Carr joins the ranks of Oosterbaan Field House, Crisler Center, Yost Ice Arena, and Schembechler Hall as the fifth head football coach at Michigan to have a structure or section of a structure named in his honor on the school’s athletic campus.
