STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - David Shaw and his staff have been working out of cubicles erected on a basketball court inside Stanford's athletic department this season while workers prepared to move the football offices into a new facility.
Safe to say Shaw and his coaches are about to get a major upgrade.
Stanford unveiled the football team's sparkling new digs Thursday night. The Arrillaga Family Sports Center, which will also provide services for other teams, received a renovation and new addition as part of an estimated $21 million project that began in 2011.
The fifth-ranked football program will move into the building next week after hosting No. 15 Washington on Saturday night. The project is the latest example of the program's rise to an unlikely national powerhouse the last six years.
