Upon the couple’s move to South Carolina after years of remaining in Michigan after Carr’s coaching career came to a close, Laurie was diagnosed with the disease in 2019. They returned to Ann Arbor so she could receive treatment at The University of Michigan hospital.
The pair married prior to Carr’s promotion to head coach from his previous position as the team’s defensive coordinator.
