The university's announcement Wednesday ends any speculation about Shaw becoming the latest Cardinal coach to make the leap to the NFL -- at least for now. Athletic director Bernard Muir said the "agreement provides added stability and reassurance that David will be at the helm to secure our football program's long-term sustained success."
Shaw has won back-to-back Pac-12 Coach of the Year awards since taking over for Jim Harbaugh. Stanford finished 11-2 last season after a loss in the Fiesta Bowl and won the conference title this year for the first time since 1999.
No. 8 Stanford (11-2) plays in the Rose Bowl against Wisconsin on Jan. 1.
