Lloyd Carr does not come across as a warm and fuzzy guy. His serious demeanor suggests he takes a dry, businesslike approach to what, after all, has become a big business. Yet when the Michigan Wolverines visited Knott's Berry Farm last week, there was the stolid, 52-year-old coach of the country's top-ranked college football team standing beside a maize-and-blue uniformed Snoopy and grinning as cameras captured the moment.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Four straight losses to Ohio State and five in six seasons. Losses in four straight bowl games, including two Rose Bowl losses to USC in the past four seasons. Plus Appalachian State. There, that's out of the way. Lloyd Carr will coach Michigan for the final time today, in the Capital One Bowl, and he deserves better than to be measured only by what he wasn't -- the gregarious, larger-than-life Bo Schembechler -- or what he didn't do and who he didn't beat.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan Coach Lloyd Carr will retire today after 13 seasons, ending an era marked by highs of winning a national championship and five Big Ten titles and lows of losing to Ohio State and Appalachian State. Carr told the Associated Press of his decision Sunday by phone, saying he wouldn't comment further until a news conference this morning at the school. The 62-year-old coach informed his players and staff of his retirement Sunday during a team meeting at Schembechler Hall.

Lloyd Carr alternately choked up and chuckled for nearly 40 minutes Monday as he announced that his 13th season as Michigan football coach will be his last. "I wanted to be able to walk out of here knowing that to the very last minute, I did my job to the best of my ability," Carr said with watery eyes. "And I know I'll be able to do that." The best of Carr's ability brought Michigan a national title and five Big Ten championships.

Security procedures before Saturday's Michigan-Ohio State game have enraged Wolverine Coach Lloyd Carr. Carr expressed his displeasure with his team and staff being subjected to searches by drug and bomb-sniffing dogs upon their arrival at Ohio Stadium. The searches were conducted in front of Buckeye fans, Carr said, making the situation even more humiliating. "I found it extremely disrespectful," Carr told the Detroit Free Press. "It was a violation of our individual rights."

The bad stretch came early. Three fumbles against Notre Dame. Three turnovers in an upset loss at Oregon and four the next week against Indiana. Looking back on Michigan's wobbly play in the first month of the season, Coach Lloyd Carr said only, "We got off to a poor start."

Michigan begins its final week of Rose Bowl preparations with a day of rest today, and Coach Lloyd Carr was glad his team -- especially his defense -- has come this far intact. "A year ago, we had five season-ending injuries to linebackers," Carr said. "This year, we've been very fortunate."

Wide receiver Jason Avant, who underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee after Michigan's loss to Ohio State on Nov. 20, didn't join his teammates Sunday when they returned to practice at the Home Depot Center after getting a day off for Christmas. Avant, second on the team to Braylon Edwards with 38 catches for 447 yards and three touchdowns, had been expected to resume activity by now but developed swelling in the knee.

Michigan Coach Lloyd Carr told reporters this week that this was his 25th Christmas away from home. And that for the 25th time, as a member of the Wolverine coaching staff, he couldn't be happier -- having received the ideal gift, another bowl game in which to play.

Bruce Madej, Michigan's assistant athletic director, was at home enjoying his Saturday off when the phone rang. It was one of the local newspaper writers. Could Madej confirm or deny a report that Wolverine Coach Gary Moeller had been arrested the night before--April 28--at an Ann Arbor restaurant? "Yeah, right," Madej said, thinking the whole thing was a joke. "No, really," the reporter said. "Give me an hour," Madej said. He called Moeller's house. Moeller's wife, Ann, answered.
