David Shaw

I really hope he ends up being at the top of JR's list for potential coaches...here's why---->

2011 PAC12 Coach of the Year
2012 PAC12 Coach of the Year
NFL experience
Head Coaching experience
QB and WR coaching experience
Pro style offense at Stanford
Physical defense at Stanford
Played a roll in Luck's development
Coached under Harbaugh (who has a clue)

Making this type of hire (college ranks) could be a good risk for this organization. Time to think outside the box one time JR and take a chance because what you've done so far has only produced 4 winning seasons. Lets venture down the road less traveled...could be gold at the end of it

I completely agree with you. I think David Shaw would be a great fit for our team. Their is one problem, how do we get him to leave Stanford? I mean JR will have to pull a rabbit out his ass to get David Shaw from Stanford. As much as I would love for this to happen it just doesn't seem possible right now.

He is my #1 pipe dream right now. Doubt it happens, but who knows.

I'm interested but yes it's a long shot getting him to leave.

Another thing is after the Jerry Richardson and Jim Harbaugh rumblings, would he even want to come here.

The same can be said about any coach at a successful college program. Boils down to whether he wants to be a head coach in the NFL.

I also wouldn't mind if we gave Chris Petersen a look, but same situation, he has no desire to leave Boise.

But outside of those two, and all due respect to the guy in Oregon, those are the only two college guys I would want.

doesn't strike me as a guy who will come in and waste his big shot like Rivera has... a guy who will go for the throat, when he gets the chance to do so at the NFL level.... just a "WOW" hire for whoever gets him, and its coming....

He is my #1 choice/hope as well, but I do believe he's more of a "pipe dream" candidate than a realistic possibility.

I would give my first born to get Shaw, but why leave Stanford....for The Carolina Panthers?

JR will have to think out of the box for this one. Hopefully the new consultant and GM can convince him. JR has always liked NFL assistants coaches. Mainly defensive coaches

i'd be fine with him or chip kelly, tbh.

i hate the "pro-style offense" tag being thrown around, tho. his offense might be more traditional, but what it means to be "pro-style is changing and in a couple years it won't be any more used in the pros than chip kelly's offense.

don't know that it matters, tho. he seems settled at stanford and isn't exactly chomping at the bit to leave there the way some other guys might.
