Nine years in the NFL and 12 in college...from the Bill Walsh coaching tree like the other two who won Lombardis here. Think about it.

This was one of the first guys that came to mind for me. What would be the odds of us taking McCaffrey if he's indeed the coach?

It's interesting idea, since he runs a WCO with emphasis on running the ball. I don't know if wants to put with the stress and hours of NFL head coach. I would stay in college were it slightly easier on your health.

I'm not sure a coach would even want his kid on the team in the pros but I think he'd get massive criticism immediately for taking him in the 1st round of the draft when we have the worst O-line in the league.

But his other qualifications make him a viable choice...IF he's actually interested in returning to the NFL.

As a Stanford fan, I say NO!


It was extremely frustrating to watch him at times. His super ultra conservative approach would not go well in the Broncos fanbase. Never understood his cling to Burns when Chryst was the better option.

We saw the 3 yards and a cloud of dust with John Fox.

This could work. College head coaches don't always work out in the NFL, but Shaw is really good. I'd trust him over picking the current hot shot NFL coordinator who has no head coaching experience.

Shaw isn't as hot a prospect as he was a couple years ago IMO.

Shaw not only coached 9 years in the NFL, he's the son of Willie Shaw, who coached in the NFL for 32 years...basically he's been in training his entire life if he decided to jump to a HC position at the pro level.

Well that's very telling. As I've said, I always value the input from other fans.

When harbaugh was at standford I thought he would become a decent NFL HC, with Shaw.. not so much. Pass. Let some other team make that mistake

That raises a red flag for me. I've had enough of Fox and Kubs pissing away possessions at the end of halves and letting the foot off the gas pedal with a 2 score lead.

I don't follow Stanford all that much, but seems as they have lost some talent over the last few years to the NFL and maybe not recruiting quite as well, Shaw's status is not what it was.

The approach was magnified in the Northwestern game.

Either way he's set to stay. No interest in the pros otherwise he'd be in the running for SF IMO

Anyone else but me, kind of wanting to see this team move away from the same old thing? Bill Walsh was a great coach and built a great coaching tree. But I'd rather see the team have a different style rather than just that same old WCO.

Perhaps he discovered that Kevin Hogan wasn't Andrew Luck and Christian McCaffrey was better than Remound Wright?

Based on what?

Harbaugh's Stanford coaching record: 50-29 (.580), Bowls: 2–2 (.500), PAC 12 Titles 0
Shaw'a Stanford coaching record: 67-14 (.790), Bowls: 4-2 (.667), PAC 12 Titles 3

Shaw even likes the label and admits he's conservative.

Ugh. So frustrating watching him go with Burns. And from all accounts, Chyst won the job but because he was younger and only because he was younger, he went with Burns. He is super conservative and would drive DEN fans nuts.
I only see this being put up here cause hometown homers really want McCaffrey.

It was a disaster 1st half of the year. He went with Burns just because he's been there longer than Chryst. When the DBs went down the defense wasn't going to keep better teams close to the low scoring offense he was putting out there.

We won a Suoer Bowl by being conservative. We got out asses kicked throwing all over the field. You really want Siemian throwing 45 times a game with Ty Sambrailo pass blocking? When you have Luck you throw. When you have Hogan and McCaffrey you run.

Or maybe you think Lynch is Luck?

He really showed a stubborn side of him that's not good. The mask kinda came off him this year. I was suprised. And the Cryst gets his shot, really starts progressing, aaaaaaand he gets his knee tore up. His other knee. Unreal.
