The Denver Broncos hired former Stanford coach David Shaw as a senior personnel executive, the team announced Thursday.

Shaw, who interviewed for Denver's head coaching job in 2023, worked alongside Broncos coach Sean Payton with the Philadelphia Eagles in 1997.

The 51-year-old has drawn strong interest around the NFL since stepping down as Stanford coach in November 2022, according to Mike Klis of 9News. He interviewed for head coaching positions with the Tennessee Titans and Los Angeles Chargers this offseason.

Shaw owns the record for most wins in Cardinal history after producing a 96-54 record across 12 seasons. He led Stanford to three Pac-12 titles and Rose Bowl appearances.

Before joining Stanford, Shaw compiled an extensive resume as an assistant coach in the NFL.

He left the Eagles to join the then-Oakland Raiders for three seasons, first acting as an offensive quality control coach before being promoted to quarterbacks coach. Shaw then spent four years with the Baltimore Ravens and one season with the then-San Diego Chargers in various roles.
