"Jim Carr has been either playing or coaching in the National Football League for more than 20 years. Appointed to the Bills' staff in February, Carr spent the 1975-76 seasons as defensive coordinator and secondary coach of the Detroit Lions. He was the architect of the Lion defense that wound up third in the NFL rankings a year ago.
A 1954 graduate of Morris Harvey College in Charlestown, West Virginia, Carr was a two-way halfback. He won a job as a defensive halfback with the Chicago Cardinals in 1955 and played three seasons with the Redbirds before landing with the CFL Montreal Alouettes in 1958. Carr spent five seasons (1959-63) with the Philadelphia Eagles, helping Philly to the NFL Championship in 1960. He closed out his career with two years in Washington (1964-65).
Carr made a quick transition from player to coach, joining Norm Van Brocklin's Minnesota staff in 1966. He went to Chicago in 1969, was with Philadelphia during the 1970-72 seasons, returned to Chicago for 1973-74 and moved on to Detroit in 1975."
