Stanford, Calif. - The Inside Stanford Sports radio show will debut this Monday, January 8. Fans are invited to attend the live 1220 AM KNTS broadcast originating from the Old Pro Restaurant at 541 Ramona Street in downtown Palo Alto each Monday from 6:00-7:00 pm, PT. This Monday's first show will feature new head football coach Jim Harbaugh, as well as head women's swimming coach Lea Maurer, head women's volleyball coach John Dunning and sophomore All-America Cynthia Barboza and former Stanford baseball great John Gall.
Harbaugh, who was hired at Stanford on December 19, 2006, played for 15 seasons as a quarterback in the National Football League from 1987-2001. He began a full-time coaching career the following year and spent two seasons as the quarterbacks coach for the Oakland Raiders, including the team's 2002 squad that played in the Super Bowl at the end of the campaign. He became a head coach for the first time at the University of San Diego in 2004 and won two Division I-AA Mid-Major titles in three campaigns with the Toreros, while compiling a three-year overall 29-6 record.
Maurer is in her second season as the head women's swimming coach for the Cardinal. The former Stanford swimmer and 1992 Olympic gold medalist led the Cardinal to a fifth-place finish at the NCAA Championships in her first campaign a year ago. She has this season's club currently ranked No. 1 in the nation and sporting a 5-0 dual meet record heading into its first Pac-10 meet and showdown with No. 2 Arizona in Tucson on Friday, January 12 (2:00 pm, MT/1:00 pm, PT).
Dunning and Barboza led the Cardinal to the NCAA championship match in December before losing the Nebraska in Ohama. Dunning has won a pair of NCAA crowns in his six seasons at Stanford and reached the national finals on two other occasions. He has a 176-30 (.815) record with the Cardinal and a 613-132 (.823) mark in 22 seasons as a collegiate head coach. Barboza concluded her sophomore season in 2006 as a First-Team All-America.
Gall peppered his name in the Stanford Baseball record books during his four seasons (1997-2000) on The Farm. He is the school's all-time leader in hits (368), doubles (80) and RBI (263), while ranking in the top three in a total of seven offensive categories. The three-time All-Pac-10 choice is now a member of the Florida Marlins after playing for the St. Louis Cardinals in 2005 and 2006.
Ted Robinson, the play-by-play voice of the Stanford Football team, will host this Monday's show.
