Carter specifically thanked his fellow coaching staff, the ADM administration and community and the Tiger Gridiron Club.
"There is truly a never a good time to walk away," Carter said in the statement. "However, I believe that ADM Football is in a phenomenal place to succeed going forward! I love you all, and the relationships we've built are for a lifetime."
Carter plans to use the coming months to focus on his family and on his mental health.
