Oregon St. fans can stop thinking about the consequences of either Beavers' coach Mike Riley or former Oregon coach Mike Bellotti taking the Stanford job.
Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News has reported that current Cardinal offensive coordinator David Shaw will be named today to replace Jim Harbaugh as head coach down on the Farm.
Shaw has been integral in the conversations even before Harbaugh made his plans official, and has the support of the locker room. What is less clear is how many, if any, of the other primary assistants will stay, most notably associate head coach Greg Roman, defensive coordinator Vic Fangio.
The Rule of Tree has all the details of how the Cardinal got here, and will follow how the assistant staff unfolds.
