Autauga Academy Head Coach Arrested for DUI; Scheduled to Coach in AISA All Star Game Dec. 6


Back on Nov. 22 Autauga Academy Head Coach was celebrating yet another Class 2A AISA State Football Championship, as he led the Generals to a win against Escambia. However, his arrest overnight in Prattville for suspected driving under the influence is making the rounds through state and local media.

Attempts to contact Carr were not successful. We have reached out to the Alabama Independent School System as well, but did not get an immediate response.

Carr is scheduled to be one of several coaches taking part in the upcoming AISA All Star Football Game at the Cramton Bowl Dec. 6. It is unknown if his arrest will impact that plan.

Carr was a longtime Athletic Director and Coach at Edgewood Academy until 2016. His teams won seven state championships for football and five for baseball during his time at Edgewood.

When Carr took a job as an offensive coach at Autauga Academy and left Edgewood, many Edgewood athletes withdrew changed schools to Autauga Academy.

When Head Coach Kyle Glover stepped down at Autauga Academy, Carr was named as his replacement.

Carr was reportedly driving a vehicle on Sheila Boulevard overnight around 3 a.m. when he was pulled over by a Prattville Police officer. Carr was arrested and booked into the Autauga Metro Jail. Whether or not this arrest will impact Carr’s employment with Autauga Academy remains to be seen.
