Lower than two months after immediately resigning from Stanford, David Shaw is again on the lookout for a job – and on this case, a promotion.
Shaw reportedly interviewed for the Denver Broncos head teaching job on Wednesday.
Denver fired Nathaniel Hackett after simply 15 video games, the place he was clearly overmatched. His struggles, mixed with surprisingly brutal play from nine-time Professional Bowler Russell Wilson, led to a 5-12 file.
Shaw coached Stanford from 2011 up till their loss towards BYU this previous season. He took over for Jim Harbaugh, who went to the San Francisco 49ers earlier than heading again to his alma mater, Michigan.
“A week ago, 10 days ago, I was gung-ho to be the person to lead us there, and over the last few days I realized it was time,” Shaw said at the time. “It was time for me to step aside, time for the next group to come in, and hopefully whoever they hire next wins more games than I do. That would be awesome…
“There are lots of people that suppose this program is down. That’s what our file says. However I have a look at the elements. I have a look at the individuals right here, the help that I’m listening to coming from our athletic director, from our college president, the individuals which are behind the scenes. We’re not that distant.”
He went 96-54 as their head coach, and is the winningest football coach in the school’s history.
He had said he did not have plans to pursue other coaching jobs. Denver also received permission to interview Sean Payton from the New Orleans Saints, and he is reportedly their “prime choice.” However, they would likely have to give hefty draft capital in order to acquire his services.
Shaw was an assistant coach for the Eagles, Raiders and Ravens from 1997 to 2005. His head-coaching gig with Stanford was his first at the college or professional level.
He was a four-time Pac-12 Coach of the 12 months.
Together with the Broncos’ disappointing season, additionally they would not have their very own first-round decide, as they despatched it to the Seattle Seahawks with the intention to get Wilson.
