STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - David Shaw has a message for anybody who believes he's going to leave Stanford for the NFL after this season: no chance.
The Cardinal coach said Monday night that the growing mention of his name for NFL jobs is ''very flattering.'' He said he was bothered by the speculation last year but now ''it's just a testament to being a really good college football program.''
Shaw was promoted from offensive coordinator after Jim Harbaugh left for the San Francisco 49ers in January 2011. He has led Stanford to a 34-6 record in three seasons, going to three straight BCS bowls and winning the past two Pac-12 titles.
The fifth-ranked Cardinal (11-2) will go for their second straight Rose Bowl victory against No. 4 Michigan State (12-1) on Jan. 1.
