Stanford signed head football coach David Shaw to a long-term extension on Wednesday, the school announced.

Financial terms and the length of the contract were not disclosed.

Shaw, who won the Pac-12 Coach of the Year for the second consecutive season, took over for Jim Harbaugh in January 2011 and has a 22-4 overall record. The Cardinal have won 11 games each of the past three seasons and this season, Stanford won the Pac-12 Conference Championship. Stanford will also be making a third straight appearance in a BCS Bowl.

"David Shaw has led the football program to great success," Stanford President John Hennessy said. "He embodies the goal we have for our scholar-athletes--success in the classroom and on the field. We are pleased that he will lead our football program for years to come."

"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.

Stanford (11-2) will take on Wisconsin (7-5) in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1.
