AFL career[edit]

Port Adelaide career (1999–2004)[edit]

In his first season, he did not play a game due to injury. In 2001 he became one of Ports important players, winning the best team man award. In 2004 he was appointed Vice Captain alongside Warren Tredrea. He played in the 2004 Port Adelaide premiership team before announcing he wanted to join Fremantle in 2005 to play alongside brother Matthew Carr.

Fremantle career (2005–2008)[edit]

Port eventually traded him and he returned to Western Australia at the beginning of the 2005 season. A hard working player, he can play as a run-with player or as an inside midfielder who can cause great damage with his quick hands and ball-winning ability.

Carr was named as Fremantle's vice-captain for the 2007 & 2008 seasons. He won the Ross Glendinning medal in the second Western Derby of 2007, gathering 26 possessions and kicking three goals as Fremantle notched up their eighth win over West Coast.

During the 2008 he began to question his career at Fremantle due to his brothers retirement. At the end of the 2008 season, Carr told the club that he wanted to be traded back to Port Adelaide for personal reasons. He played 83 games for Fremantle in four seasons.[2]

Return to Port Adelaide (2009–2010)[edit]

He was drafted at number 2 by the Power in the 2008 Pre-Season Draft and played his 200th AFL game against Carlton in Round 20, 2009.

On 19 July 2010, Carr announced he would retire following Showdown XXIX at AAMI Stadium.[3] He ended his career in a 19-point win over the Crows, marking an impressive 10–0 record in showdowns.[4]

Coaching career[edit]

On 19 October 2011, Carr joined Port Adelaide as an assistant coach.[5]

On 3 October 2015 Carr was announced as the new North Adelaide Roosters SANFL head coach for the 2016 season replacing former coach Ken McGregor
