Former Stanford head coach David Shaw is interviewing for the Broncos HC job

Former Stanford head coach David Shaw is interviewing for the Broncos HC job

Jim Harbaugh isn’t the only college coach the Denver Broncos are eyeing.

Former Stanford head coach David Shaw has interviewed for the Broncos’ vacant head coaching position, NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero reported Wednesday night.

The Broncos’ coaching search for a replacement for Nathaniel Hackett suggested a wide range prospects from college to the NFL to the TV booth, from big names to full-time assistants.

Shaw and Harbaugh are two who have already interviewed along with Denver defensive coordinator Ager Ever. Meanwhile, former Saints head coach Sean Payton has received an inquiry, while former Lions and Colts head coach Jim Caldwell is scheduled to interview, as is Raheem Morris. Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and Niners DC DeMeco Ryans also received inquiries.

However, Shaw, 50, is a new name to enter the mix of coaching candidates.

He retired from Stanford last November after a 3-9 season, his last in 12 years for the Cardinal.

Shaw had nine years of experience as an NFL assistant with the Philadelphia Eagles, Raiders and Baltimore Ravens before joining Harbaugh at the University of San Diego in 2006. Shaw returned to his alma mater when he went with Harbaugh to Stanford.

After Harbaugh left Stanford to coach the San Francisco 49ers, Shaw took over as head coach in 2011. He had great success from the start, as his teams built a reputation for playing a physical style different from those often seen with Cardinal teams before.

In a dozen seasons at Stanford, Shaw went 96-54 with a 5-3 mark in bowl games, including two Rose Bowl victories. His resignation comes after three losing seasons in the past four years.

Now he’s somewhat reunited with Harbaugh as the two are in talks to potentially become the Broncos’ next head coach.
