Stanford Coach Denies Players Faked Injuries 10/9/13
STANFORD, Calif.- Stanford football coach David Shaw has emphatically fired back at Steve Sarkisian after the Washington coach accused the Cardinal of faking injuries.
Shaw opened his portion of the Pac-12 coaches' teleconference with a carefully crafted statement, saying "we don't fake injuries, we never have and we never will. I don't condone it. I don't teach it. I don't allow it." He called Sarkisian's allegations "unprofessional" and pointed out that the only defensive coach he knows of who has told players to fake injuries works on Washington's staff.
