  Stanford hired Sacramento State coach Troy Taylor on Saturday to replace David Shaw and lead a Pac-12 program that has fallen off dramatically recently, with three losing seasons in the last four years. Taylor, 54, has spent the last four seasons as head coach at Sacramento State, leading the Hornets to the FCS playoffs three times. Sacramento State did not field a team during 2020 because of the pandemic. Sacramento State went 30-8 with a 23-1 record in a tough Big Sky Conference under Taylor.

The Hornets lost a wild quarterfinal playoff game Friday night, 66-63 against Incarnate Word. "The opportunity to lead the finest student-athletes in the country is truly a dream come true, and I would like to thank President (Marc) Tessier-Lavigne, Provost (Persis) Drell and (athletic director) Bernard Muir," Taylor said in a statement. "I believe that Stanford football is perfectly positioned to become champions on the football field while maintaining our world-class reputation for academic excellence." Shaw stepped down last month after 12 seasons following the final game of a 3-9 season. The winningest coach in school history was struggling to change the trajectory of a program that was the predominant team in the Pac-12 during the first half of his tenure. Stanford's downfall coincides the loosening of transfer rules across major college football. The elite academic school is not able to add to its roster through transfers as easily as most of its competition in the Pac-12 and nationally. Taylor, a native Californian, played quarterback for Stanford's rival, Cal, and had a short NFL career in the early 1990s before getting into coaching at the high school and college levels. - AP College Football

  2022 LOU GROZA AWARD FINALIST (OUTSTANDING KICKER): Joshua Karty, Stanford,...Following a perfect 18-for-18 season on field goals, Stanford junior kicker Joshua Karty was named one of three finalists for the 2022 Lou Groza Award on Tuesday morning. The award is presented annually to the Collegiate Place-Kicker of the Year by the Palm Beach County Sports Commission and the Orange Bowl. Karty is joined by NC State's Christopher Dunn and Michigan's Jake Moody as the three finalists. Karty, a native of Burlington, N.C., went 18-of-18 on the year on field goal attempts, with 13 of those makes from 40-or-more yards. Karty was the only qualified kicker nationally with no misses on the year, and the only kicker with 13 makes of 40+ yards this season.

Dating back to 1996, Karty is just the fourth kicker with at least 18 makes to have a perfect season, and just the third kicker with 10+ makes from 40-or-more yards without a miss. He set the school record with a 61-yard field goal at Cal, and also had makes of 54 yards (vs. BYU) and 53 yards (at Oregon). No kicker nationally had more than three 50+-yard field goals with no misses. Karty's 61-yarder was five yards further than any other kicker this season. Karty was named Pac-12 Special Teams Player of the Week four times in 2022 and a Lou Groza Award Star of the Week twice. For his career, Karty is 51-for-52 on PATs and 28-for-34 on field goals. His five career misses have come from 49, 51, 54, 55 and 58 yards. - Stanford Football

  2022 WUERFFEL TROPHY FINALIST: Patrick Fields, Stanford,...For the second straight season, Stanford's fifth-year safety Patrick Fields has been named a finalist for the Wuerffel Trophy. Fields is joined by Florida State's Dillan Gibbons and Minnesota's Tanner Morgan as the three finalists. The winner will be announced on Thursday, Dec. 8. A two-time graduate at Oklahoma, Fields is studying for his master's in management science and engineering at Stanford. He was one of three finalists for the award last season at Oklahoma, which ultimately was received by Cardinal quarterback Isaiah Sanders. Fields has been active in the Stanford community since joining the Cardinal program from Oklahoma in January. He planned and executed a three-day mentorship and networking event prior to Juneteenth in his hometown of Tulsa, Okla. The event brought together high school and college students with black business owners, leaders and mentors, to teach the students about the college admissions process and financial resources available to them.

Fields raised the funds to make all events during the three days free to those who attended and hopes to give out academic scholarships through the event in the future. While at Oklahoma, Fields founded the Black Wall Street Scholarship, collaborating with the president of the OU National Black Alumni Association to establish an endowment with the purpose of providing scholarships for underrepresented and lower income students from inner-city Tulsa. In July of 2021, Fields founded and coordinated the Patrick Fields Back to School Bash and football camp for economically vulnerable elementary students in Tulsa. He is passionate about educating students, especially underrepresented students, about financial literacy, money management, credit and personal branding, and founded Town Business to do just that in Tulsa. Established in 2005, the Wuerffel Trophy honors college football players who serve others, celebrate their impact, and inspire greater service in the world. - Stanford Football

  Stanford coach David Shaw resigned Saturday night after finishing his 12th season at his alma mater with a 36-25 loss to BYU that dropped the Cardinal to 3-9. Shaw, 50, led Stanford to five double-digit win seasons, with three Pac-12 titles and Rose Bowl appearances in his first six years as head coach. He finished with more wins than any coach in program history with a 96-54 record, and was considered one of the most respected coaches in the country. Shaw arrived unusually late to his postgame news conference and said his decision only came in the last few days. "A week ago, 10 days ago, I was gung-ho to be the person to lead us there, and over the last few days I realized it was time," Shaw said. "It was time for me to step aside, time for the next group to come in, and hopefully whoever they hire next wins more games than I do. That would be awesome." The falloff in recent years has been drastic. The Cardinal are 14-28 over the last four seasons as the program has struggled to keep up in a rapidly changing college football landscape with players transferring more freely and earning money for name, image and likeness.

Stanford is 3-16 in Pac-12 play the past two seasons, including consecutive losses to rival California. "There are a lot of people that think this program is down. That's what our record says," Shaw said. "But I look at the components. I look at the people here, the support that I'm hearing coming from our athletic director, from our university president, the people that are behind the scenes. We're not that far away." Shaw, a California native who played receiver for Stanford in the early 1990s, replaced Jim Harbaugh as head coach in 2011. He had been offensive coordinator for Harbaugh from 2007-10. Shaw spent nine seasons as an NFL assistant before joining Harbaugh's staff at the University of San Diego and then following him to Stanford. - AP College Football

  Joshua Karty's 61-yard field goal for Stanford against California was the longest in the nation this season and enhanced his resume for the Lou Groza Award.
