STANFORD, Calif. — Any speculation David Shaw could be the latest Stanford coach to jump to the NFL is over — at least for now.
Shaw agreed to a "long-term contract extension" Wednesday that will keep him with his alma mater beyond the two years left on his remaining deal. Terms of the contract were not announced by the school.
New athletic director Bernard Muir said the "agreement provides added stability and reassurance that David will be at the helm to secure our football program's long-term sustained success."
Shaw has won back-to-back Pac-12 Coach of the Year awards since taking over for Jim Harbaugh, who left for the San Francisco 49ers after starting Stanford's resurgence. The Cardinal finished 11-2 last season after a loss in the Fiesta Bowl and won the conference title this year for the first time since 1999.
No. 8 Stanford (11-2) will play in the Rose Bowl against Big Ten winner Wisconsin (8-5) on Jan. 1.
