News Conference set for 10:00 a.m. Monday
A news conference has been scheduled for Monday, November 19, 2007, at 10:00 a.m. at which it is widely believed that Coach Carr will discuss his future as Michigan's Head Football Coach. It is conventional wisdom, of course, that Coach Carr will officially announce his retirement at that time. Such an announcement would end months of speculation on that topic. However, it will only fuel speculation on Michigan fans other favorite topic: Who will be Michigan's next Head Coach? It will be interesting to see Monday if any hints are given as to what the future may hold in that regard. As for Coach Carr, it would have been nice if he could have gone out on top (assuming of course he is retiring) rather than a hail of criticism. I would like to see him coach another year but that seems unlikely at this point. Go Blue!
UPDATE: It is now being reported as official that Coach Carr will announce his retirement tomorrow during the Monday press conference with the retirement to become effective after the bowl game.
