Stanford’s Shaw repeats as Pac-12 Coach of the Year

SAN FRANCISCO — Stanford coach David Shaw has won the Pac-12 Conference’s Coach of the Year award for the second straight season.

Southern California wide receiver Marqise Lee also was named the league’s Offensive Player of the Year and Arizona State defensive tackle Will Sutton the Defensive Player of the Year on Monday. Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota took home Offensive Freshman of the Year honors and Trojans freshman defensive end Leonard Williams won on the defensive side.

Shaw is the fourth coach in league history to win the award in consecutive seasons. Shaw helped Stanford overcome the departure of No. 1 overall draft pick Andrew Luck, seamlessly made a midseason quarterback change from Josh Nunes to Kevin Hogan and overtook Oregon to take the North Division crown.

Lee set conference records with 112 receptions for 1,680 yards to go with 14 touchdowns. Sutton led the Pac-12 with 1.82 tackles for loss per game and also registered 10½ sacks.

Cornerback Desmond Trufant was the only Washington Husky named to the All-Pac-12 first team. Tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins was named to the second team, along with Washington State cornerback Deone Bucannon and kicker Andrew Furney.
