Bill  Carr

Associate Head Coach (4th Year)


Toreros Tabbed Fourth in Preseason WCC Poll

Maya Hood was named preseason first-team All-WCC.

Bill Carr enters his fourth year as Associate Head Coach on Bill Grier's staff. As Grier's Associate Head Coach, Carr plays an important role with all aspects of the Torero basketball program, including recruiting, scheduling, scouting, practice preparation, coaching USD's forwards and centers, and with in-game decision making.

In 2007-08 he played a key role in USD's success as the Toreros finished 22-14 overall (11-3 in WCC, 3rd place), won the WCC Tournament title, and advanced to the 2nd round of the NCAA Tournament. The Toreros stunned No. 15 UCONN in the first round giving USD its first ever NCAA Tournament victory. San Diego also garnered top-20 victories over Gonzaga and Saint Mary's, along with an impressive road win over the Kentucky Wildcats at historic Rupp Arena.

Carr came to USD from nearby UC San Diego where he had been the head coach for Tritons program for three years. In his second season at the helm, Carr guided the Tritons to a 15-14 record in 2005-06. It marked the program's first winning season since the Tritons moved to the NCAA Division II ranks back in 2000-01.

Carr returns to the West Coast Conference where he was a player and assistant coach at the University of San Francisco. Carr played two years (1985-87) at USF for former San Diego head coach Jim Brovelli. The first year was the "Back to Basketball" group that marked the restart of the program after a three-year hiatus. Carr earned a degree in Accounting and went on to spend nine years as an assistant at USF for Brovelli (5 years) and Phil Mathews (4 years). He helped land 10 first team All-WCC performers, including the 1998 and 2000 WCC Freshmen of the Year. USF advanced to the NCAA Tournament in 1998 after winning the West Coast Conference Tournament championship.

Before getting the head position at UC San Diego, Carr served two seasons as the associate head coach at Long Beach State, and three as the head coach at Spring Hill College in Mobile, Alabama. A native of Glendale, Calif., Carr accumulated a career mark of 84-23 (.785) at Spring Hill, leading the Badgers to three appearances in the NAIA National Tournament. In 2000 and 2001, Spring Hill advanced to the NAIA "Elite Eight". In his first season (1999-00) Carr led Spring Hill to a 29-8 mark, a Gulf Coast Athletic Conference (GCAC) championship and a trip to the NAIA Tournament, where it advanced to the final eight. Carr was named GCAC Coach of the Year that season and was a finalist for the NAIA National Coach of the Year.

Bill and his wife, Pam, have three children - Allie, Madison and Paul.
