Stanford, Calif. - Walt Harris will not return as the Stanford Football head coach announced Athletic Director Bob Bowlsby today. A search for a successor will begin immediately.
"Let me first say that I appreciate the work and dedication of coach Harris on behalf of Stanford University," said Bowlsby. "It is unfortunate that things played out the way they did. In some measure, the change in leadership is not fair to coach Harris. But, given the situation, it is my opinion that we have to start anew and identify new leadership."
"I'd like to thank Stanford University for the opportunity to come back home and coach at Stanford," commented Harris. "Regretfully, I leave with a heavy heart, because we didn't get the job done. I wish the Stanford players and the program the best of luck as they rebuild."
