GREENSBORO, NC -- Guilford College Athletics Director Marion Kirby announced the addition of assistant football coach Lamar Carter to the Quakers' staff Friday.
Carter hopes to make the same impact in his first coaching job that he did as a player at Division I-AA Tennessee State. He enjoyed a standout playing career with the Tigers, where he was the Ohio Valley Conference (OVC) Defensive Player of the Year in 1999. A two-time First Team All-OVC selection, Carter set the school's career sacks record (41.5), breaking the mark held by former NFL standout Richard Dent. Carter also played professionally for the Nashville Storm in the North American Football League and helped lead the squad to the league semifinals in 2004.
