Windsor Lancers hire Carter as associate coach & defensive coordinator

The Windsor Lancers have announced that Donnavan Carter has joined the football program as the team’s associate coach and defensive coordinator.

“We are extremely excited to add Donnavan Carter to our coaching staff,” commented Lancers head coach Joe D’Amore.  “He brings a ton of knowledge and experience to our program.”

“Obviously his background in the OUA was intriguing to us, and the ties in the GTA area will go a long way in recruiting student-athletes for us.”

A native of Brampton, Ontario, Carter was the fourth overall pick of the Toronto Argonauts in the 2000 CFL draft after an outstanding collegiate career at the University of Northern Illinois. He was named one of the captains in his senior year with the Huskies and voted the team’s defensive MVP that season.
Known as one of the hardest hitters in the league during his eight-year professional career, Carter played both outside linebacker and safety and made four different stops (Toronto, Hamilton, Ottawa and Winnipeg) before officially retiring in 2008.  During the 2003 season, he was named a CFLPA all-star and served as Renegades team captain.

Carter was the defensive coordinator for the University of Toronto Varsity Blues for four seasons. During his time with the Etobicoke Eagles of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL) in the same role, the Eagles were successful in qualifying for the regional championship.
