David Shaw the Stanford head coach has been amazing over his tenure, but last night after losing to BYU he made an announcement that shocked the country.
Shaw decided to resign as the head coach of the Cardinals. In 12 seasons at the school, he finished with an astonishing 96-54 record.
“After many prayers and multiple discussions with my wife, one phrase keeps coming to me – it’s time. There are not sufficient words to describe the love and gratitude I feel for my family, all of my former and current players, my staff, this administration and the entire Stanford family. Thank you all,” Shaw announced after more than a decade with the program.
He won three PAC-12 titles and two Rose Bowl victories during his time with the team.
Shaw had back to back 3-9 seasons and he must have felt it was time to move on.
Either way Stanford should be a pretty attractive job for someone.
