Former CFLer signs on as associate coach for Lancer football

A new associate head coach for Lancer football will be called upon to help with recruiting and fundraising, as well as coordinate the team’s on-field defence.

Head coach Joe D’Amore announced the appointment of Donnavan Carter, a former Canadian Football League all-star, to fill the position Tuesday. Over his eight-year CFL career, Carter started at the safety and linebacker positions with the Toronto Argonauts, Ottawa Renegades, Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Winnipeg Blue Bombers. As team captain for Ottawa in 2003, he was selected as a Canadian Football League Players Association all-star at the free safety position.

The Brampton native comes to Windsor from the University of Toronto, where he served four seasons as defensive coordinator for the Varsity Blues.

“Donnavan not only has experience running a defence at the CIS level, but his extensive playing career in the CFL gives him instant creditability with our players,” D’Amore said. “He brings with him a sound defensive system that will allow our players to play fast and adapt quickly.”
