David Shaw Named Stanford Head Coach: Greg Roman Front-Runner For Jim Harbaugh Coaching Staff

Fooch's UpdateCSN's Scott Reiss tweeted that Fangio and Roman will not return to Stanford. Not shocking, but worth noting.

David White of the San Francisco Chronicle is reporting that the 49ers have spoken with current Stanford Cardinal assistant head coach Greg Roman. I've posted his resume after the jump. He has extensive NFL experience, primarily on the offensive side of the ball, but much the potential 49ers coaching staff could depend on how the Cardinal decide on their next head coach.

I've seen some interesting comments about the Stanford coaching situation, particularly in regards to offensive assistant David Shaw likely getting the position. It seems like the 49ers dominos would begin falling once that announcement is made. Recruiting is a major issue for a new Stanford coaching staff so an announcement would likely come sooner rather than later. And as I'm typing this ESPN is reporting that Stanford has promoted David Shaw into the head coach position. I wouldn't be surprised if the 49ers began announcing some of these Stanford-based assistant positions today or tomorrow.

The big question is what role Roman would actually fill. He might be listed as offensive coordinator but if Harbaugh is handling some of the play-calling, Roman might not actually be a traditional OC. We'll have to wait and see how it plays out. I've posted Roman's coaching resume after the jump and you can read some more details HERE.
