Stanford’s David Shaw has ‘no desire to pursue another job’

The NFL’s Black Monday is upon us, and with it comes a spate of rumors involving college coaches. David Shaw is among the rumored names, though the Stanford coach reiterated on Monday he has “no desire” to leave Palo Alto.

Shaw has previously maintained he has no interest in leaving Stanford, so this isn’t too surprising. It’s also not surprising NFL teams could come after Shaw, who’s continued the success Jim Harbaugh brought to the Cardinal before departing for San Francisco.

With a bunch of NFL jobs opening up in the last 24 hours (Detroit, Tampa Bay, Minnesota, Washington, Cleveland) as well as the Houston gig being open, this string of coaching rumors at the college level won’t slow down anytime soon.

    “I have no desire to leave” ≠ “I’m not leaving”

    “I’m not leaving” ≠ Actually not leaving

    If you doubt the above formula, look up the employment history of Nick Saban.

    Let’s be real. Shaw is taking lessons learned from Ty Willingham. Ty mucked up by leaving P.A. for South Bend even after he KNEW he wasn’t their first choice. What could go wrong there. Then he went to UW and totally shot himself in the arse.

    David Shaw is smart and no ego. He knows that Stanford is the best and safest job he’s ever going to have as a head coach. I mean, you beat Cal year in and year out, that’s half the battle. Then you beat a USC and/or UCLA and be at the top of the conference and you’re golden.

    See when Shaw mentioned after last season’s Rose Bowl win that he wants Stanford to be the Alabama of the West, that told me a lot about him. While its okay to use ‘Bama as a measuring stick, strive to surpass what they have done.

    Still, he’s right for the job at Stanford at this point. Just don’t slip and you will be fine; until the ‘can’t go all the way’ discussions start.
