(5-19-23) When Mark and Diane Carr decided to move their family from Celina, Ohio to Oklahoma in 1992…their son Eric was still in high school.
It has turned out to be a great move for the Carr family. Eric has been very successful coaching both boys and girls basketball, including a 5A girls state title at Piedmont. The past several years he has been able to coach his daughter Khloe. On June 3rd they will be together one more time as Eric will coach the Large West All-stars and his graduated daughter Khloe will be on that team.
The Oklahoma Girls Basketball Coaches Association games will be at Mustang High School on Saturday, June 3rd with the large-school game at 3:30 p.m..

Piedmont’s Eric Carr and Moore’s Brent Hodges will coach the Large West.
What makes this game extra special for the Carr family…assistant Joe Crawford was promoted to head coach at Piedmont , after Eric Carr resigned following the end of this season. Carr went 94-34 with one state title and three state tournament appearances during his run at Piedmont.. .
