The 2009 season will mark Andy Buh's third year on the Stanford coaching staff and his second as the team's co-defensive coordinator.
Under Buh and assistant head coach/co-defensive coordinator Ron Lynn, Stanford was an improved defensive team last season, as the Cardinal imcreased its numbers in total defense, rushing defense and pass defense from the year before.
As linebackers coach, Buh has tutored an aggressive group of linebackers, including Clinton Snyder and Pat Maynor, who earned honorable mention accolades in 2007 and '08, respectively. In addition, Chike Amajoyi and Nick Macaluso earned first team Sporting News all-freshmen team honors following the 2008 season.
Prior to joining Stanford's staff for the 2007 season, Buh had collegiate coaching stops at Nevada (1997-99), California (2000-01), San Diego State (2002-05) and Fresno State (2006).
At Fresno State, he served as a graduate assistant on Pat Hill's staff, assisting with the linebackers, special teams and running the Bulldogs scout team.
Before his stop in Fresno, Buh worked as the linebackers coach at San Diego State from 2002-05, helping the Aztecs assemble a defensive unit that ranked eighth nationally in total defense in 2003. One of Buh's pupils was Kirk Morrison, who twice was named the Mountain West Conference's Defensive Player of the Year. In 2005, two Aztec linebackers appeared on national watch lists for the Nagurski and Butkus Awards.
In addition, Buh coached four Aztec players--Matt McCoy, Kirk Morrison, Freddie Keiaho and Heath Farwell--who went onto play in the NFL. McCoy was drafted in the second round of the 2005 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles, while the Oakland Raiders tabbed Morrison in the third round. Keiaho was a third round selection of the Indianapolis Colts in 2006 while Farwell played three seasons with the Minnesota Vikings after signing a free agent contract.
Buh spent two seasons (2000-01) at Cal, where he served as a defensive administrative assistant working with the defensive coordinator and linebackers.
His first collegiate coaching assignment was at the University of Nevada, where he served as a graduate assistant at his alma mater for the 1997-98 seasons. He accepted a position as secondary coach at Saint Mary's College in Moraga in the spring of 1999, but elected to return to Nevada to work with the secondary and assist with special teams prior to the '99 season.
A two-year varsity letterwinner from 1993-94 at Nevada under head coach Chris Ault, Buh began his collegiate playing career at Palomar College, where he helped the Comets to a share of the 1991 Junior College Grid Wire national championship. He earned junior college All-America honors following the 1992 season before transferring to Nevada.
A native of Escondido, Calif. and a 1991 graduate of Orange Glen High School, Buh earned a bachelor's degree in physical education from Nevada in 1996.
Andy and his wife Kelly reside in Palo Alto.
