David Shaw, Head Coach, Stanford

Fans are wowed by Chip Kelly's spread-out, up-tempo offense in Philadelphia, but NFL coaches want to know how to stop it. Enter David Shaw. His Stanford defense held Oregon to just 14 points during the 2012 season by playing smart, disciplined, gap-controlled defense.

Shaw may follow Jim Harbaugh into the NFL, but he's not a Jim Jr. in any way. Shaw is more Tom Coughlin than Harbaugh with his quiet, sturdy leadership and structure.

College coaches who don't win big in college can struggle to win over an NFL locker room, but Shaw's reputation precedes him. The Stanford program is the real deal, and Shaw's work as offensive coordinator for Andrew Luck is well known. It also helps that he was in the NFL as a wide receivers coach from 1997 until 2005, when he followed Harbaugh to the University of San Diego.

Shaw is ready for the NFL and should start hearing his phone ring as soon as an NFL team is ready to move on from their head coach. He could have a new head coaching job after this season...if he wants one.

I really like Shaw.

That USC game has me a little worried though.

Oregon-USC is kind of like the NFL playoffs.

They came off a huge win and then suffered an upset the next week. Yikes. I know it happens a lot in CFB, but for a potential NFL coach I would like to see that not happen. Every week in the playoffs is a big week. Letting your guard down will get you eliminated and the same place the Falcons are now.
