Stanford coach David Shaw building his own legacy on The Farm since Jim Harbaugh left

The day David Shaw became Stanford's head coach almost two years ago, he soundly said he never wanted to interview for another football job again.

Shaw will likely have larger suitors come calling soon — though he still insists he's not going anywhere.

The former Cardinal wide receiver and assistant has not only kept his alma mater a national power, he has made the program stronger and started to build his own legacy on The Farm. Shaw has a chance to do something even his more prominent predecessor, Jim Harbaugh, never did: win the Pac-12 title Friday night when eighth-ranked Stanford (10-2, 8-1) hosts No. 17 UCLA (9-3, 6-3) in the league championship game.
