Unfortunately, less than an hour after Reese proclaimed that David Shaw would be a great fit, he signed an extension with Stanford according to Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News.
“Stanford announces a new ‘long-term contract extension’ for David Shaw. Deserves it. He's sticking around for a while. “
He would’ve fit well. He is 22-4 in his two seasons with the Cardinal. With Shaw signed long term in Palo Alto and Alabama athletic director Mal Moore claiming he believes Nick Saban isn’t leaving, does that leave Chip Kelly as the only realistic collegiate coaching option for the Eagles? That answer should come in just a few weeks.
