Richard Sherman Throws Support Behind Candidate for Chargers Coaching Vacancy

The Los Angeles Chargers interviewed former Stanford football coach David Shaw on Thursday to fill their head coaching position, and former NFL cornerback Richard Sherman might be one of his biggest supporters.

Sherman played football at Stanford while Shaw was the offensive coordinator there. Then, Shaw took over as head coach from 2011–22.

While Shaw might not appear as the Chargers’ front runner right of the bat, Sherman wanted to make a point of noting why he should be.

“Wait a minute @chargers. He should be your guy! Don’t let him leave the city!” Sherman tweeted. “Great mind. Great leader. Great for the culture!”

Shaw ended his 12-season career with Stanford as the winningest coach in school history with a 96–54 overall record.

He has previous experience working in the NFL from 1997–2005, working with the Philadelphia Eagles, Las Vegas Raiders (then Oakland) and the Baltimore Ravens in various assistant positions.

The Chargers completed interviews with various other candidates, including Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh who is coming off a national title with the Wolverines. Los Angeles also interviewed former Tennessee Titans coach Mike Vrabel on Thursday.

The Chargers fired coach Brandon Staley on Dec. 15 after a 5–9 start to the season. The team also parted ways with general manager Tom Telesco, so the Chargers have been completing interviews for that position, too.
