LOS ANGELES (AP) - Stanford coach David Shaw usually just chuckles when he's connected with head coaching vacancies in the NFL or at the nation's top college programs.

In his own understated way, Michigan State's Mark Dantonio does the same thing.

Both coaches have turned themselves into valuable properties by building formidable football programs and then staying at two schools sometimes considered stepping stones instead of destinations for coaches.

When the Spartans and Cardinal clash in the 100th edition of the Rose Bowl on Wednesday, Dantonio and Shaw will demonstrate the power of persistence in building a winner.

Both could have parlayed their success at these two schools into opportunities elsewhere, as coaches like Nick Saban and Tyrone Willingham did in recent years.

Shaw and Dantonio both have seemed content to stick around.
