Stanford football coach David Shaw has been given a "long-term" contract extension, according to a news release from the school on Wednesday.

Shaw, who guided Stanford to an 11-2 record and a Rose Bowl appearance this season, was in the second year of a four-year deal. Shaw was hired on Jan. 13, 2011 to replace Jim Harbaugh when Harbaugh left to coach the 49ers. Shaw was the Cardinal's offensive coordinator for four seasons before taking over as head coach.

Terms of the deal, including the length of the extension, were not announced by the school.

"I feel blessed to work every day with an outstanding staff and coach the best group of young men in America, and I am excited to lead the Stanford Football program for many years to come," Shaw said in a statement.
