Michigan approves request to name Michigan Stadium tunnel after Lloyd Carr
Michigan football will be running through Lloyd Carr tunnel ahead of football games in the near future.
The Wolverines announced Thursday that the Stadium tunnel would be named after the legendary football coach. The tunnel will be dedicated on Oct. 15, 2022.
Lloyd Carr was one of the great coaches and leaders in college football,” head coach Jim Harbaugh said, via Michigan athletics. “We are forever proud that he was our coach, ally and trusted friend. He was loyal to the University of Michigan and was committed to the development of his players as young men, citizens and football players. Lloyd personally helped me become a better player during my time at Michigan, expanding my knowledge by teaching me defensive coverages and tendencies when I was injured in 1984. That experience helped me throughout my playing career and shows his dedication to each player and the team’s overall success. It will be an honor to leave the locker room through the Lloyd Carr Tunnel on our way to the field every home game.”
Carr won a National Championship with the Wolverines in 1997 and totaled 5 B1G championships in 1997, 1998, 2000, 2003 and 2004.
He was inducted into the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame and the National Football Foundation and College Football Hall of Fame in 2011.
