HOF_0004_2000_-_Lloyd_Carr_(Michigan)_Interview

Lloyd Carr

Head Coach, Michigan
Orange Bowl: 2000

Lloyd Carr became the first Michigan coach to win four straight bowl games after defeating the Alabama Crimson Tide 35-34 in thrilling overtime fashion in the 2000 Orange Bowl. Carr finished his coaching career at Michigan with a 122-40 overall record in 13 seasons, ranking in the AP Top 25 for all but 14 of his 162 games. The 2011 College Football Hall of Fame inductee won five Big Ten Championships and one National Championship during his time in Ann Arbor. After stepping down, Carr became a member of the College Football Playoff Selection Committee, the NCAA Rules Committee and the American Football Coaches Association. He also endowed a women's sports scholarship annually to Michigan female student-athletes.

Homer Jordan

Quarterback, Clemson
Orange Bowl: 1982

Homer Jordan led Clemson to its first national championship and third perfect season in its 88-year  history on his way to earning MVP honors in the 1982 Orange Bowl. Jordan finished 11 for 22 passing for 134 yards and one touchdown in addition to 46 rushing yards in the Tigers’ 22-15 victory over Tom Osborne’s Nebraska Cornhuskers. The ACC leader in passing efficiency became Clemson’s first African American quarterback to make an All-Conference team and was later inducted into the Clemson Athletics Hall of Fame and the Athens Athletic Hall of Fame. Following his career, he went back to Cedar Shoals High School, his alma mater, to become an assistant football coach.

John Swofford

Commissioner, ACC
1997 - 2021

John Swofford guided the Atlantic Coast Conference as commissioner for 24 years and was instrumental in the conference’s 12-year agreement with the Orange Bowl, designed to automatically send the ACC Champion or an ACC representative to the Capital One Orange Bowl every year. During his leadership from 1997-2021, current ACC schools made 20 appearances in a game hosted by Orange Bowl, the most of any conference. Swofford remains the longest-tenured commissioner in the history of the Atlantic Coast Conference, and during his time, steered the league to unprecedented success and growth, expanding from nine to 15 members.
