David Shaw has interviewed for the Los Angeles Chargers’ head coaching vacancy.

The franchise announced that move on Thursday afternoon. Shaw is at least the second high-profile coach with ties to college football that the Chargers have interviewed during this process. The team also interviewed Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh for the position this week.

Most recently, Shaw was the head coach at Stanford from 2011-22. His time with the Cardinal included three trips to the Rose Bowl (and a pair of wins) as well as a trio of Pac-12 Championships. Shaw was also named Pac-12 Coach of the Year four times during his tenure.

Earlier in his coaching career, Shaw did spend some time in the NFL as an assistant. He worked for the Baltimore Ravens, Oakland Raiders and the Philadelphia Eagles.

Shaw, 51, did not coach anywhere during the 2023 season.

The Chargers’ head coaching job is considered to be one of the most sought-after vacancies on the market this offseason. The Chargers have a franchise quarterback in Justin Herbert and also have talented players at other key positions.

There is no timetable for the Chargers to make a decision on their next head coach.
