Jim Harbaugh will not be available. How about David Shaw ?

He has only been a head coach for two years, but he has done very well. It is not easy to win at Stanford.

Shaw was Harbaugh's passing game cooridinator at the University of San Diego and Harbaugh brought him along to Stanford as his OC, where he flourished.

Shaw also is no stranger to the pro game, having served as an assistant for the Eagles, Raiders and Ravens. He runs what is very much a pro-style system at Stanford.

He is the main reason Andrew Luck was considered the most Pro ready quarterback to come out of college in many years.

My guess is that if you ain't good, you don't stick as Harbaugh's OC for 7 seasons.

The guy is super smart and no nonsense, just like his mentor.

My guess is that JR will want to go for a proven NFL head coach, but I think Shaw deserves a serious look.

I don't think Shaw is going to last long at Stanford...somebody is going to ****** him up.

I liked you post and if I could would hit like 10 more times.

No cooridinators, No College HC's ..... bring in a former NFL HC who has had success at the NFL level.

I actually suggested this in the new head coach thread a while back, he looks like he could be a real find. I'd be willing to give him a shot.

And he's Stanford's HC, so he'll have both coordinating and HC experience, albeit at the college level.

edit: it was in the Andy Reid or Norv Turner thread:

Shaw has been the head coach for two years at Stanford. You are not getting Ron Rivera here...This guy knows how to manage games and is a quarterback guru as well as a guy who believes in defense.

I really like Shaw. I think he's going to be a very good NFL HC. It's a bit risky getting a college HC, but his offense is awesome. He runs a power run offense and really utilizes his TE's.

We as an organization do not have the luxury of taking risks with the head coach position again.

Sorry, didn't mean to steal your thunder...I am new to this forum and did not read that thread...

I have just watched a few Stanford games over the last couple of years and have really been impressed with their strong fundamental play and Shaw's demeanor on the sideline.

I agree totally...the guy is going to be a big winner for someone...

As of late college coaches have been being more successful. Harbaugh is already a stud, and Pete Caroll and Schiano look like they know what they are doing.

Ha no worries, didn't mean to intimate that you stole my thunder! I hope we at least give him a look. We've gone the "NFL defensive coordinator" route with every hire except for Seifert (who was also a defensive coordinator before he was a HC!) so I'm hoping we try a different approach this time.
