Despite interest from NFL teams, coach David Shaw plans to stay at Stanford, according to two sources familiar with the situation.
Shaw already is on the Houston Texans radar, and is expected to be on the radar of just about any NFL team making a head-coaching change.
The 41-year-old Shaw was Jim Harbaugh’s offensive coordinator at Stanford, and succeeded him there when Harbaugh went to the San Francisco 49ers. He has also worked as an assistant coach with the Oakland Raiders and Philadelphia Eagles.
No. 5 Stanford (11-2) is the only program to make a BCS bowl the last four years. The twice-reigning Pac-12 champions, who also are the only team to win at least 11 games in each of those years, will go for a second straight Rose Bowl victory when they face No. 4 Michigan State (12-1) on Jan. 1.
