Stanford Football - a vote for excellence
We, the undersigned, as lifelong supporters of Stanford's greatness on the
playing field and in the classroom, hereby offer this petition to the greater Stanford family and community including John Hennessy (President of Stanford University), Bob Bowlsby (Athletic Director), the Stanford Board of Trustees, Mr. John Arrillaga (lifelong Stanford leader and donor), leaders of the Stanford Athletic Board and to all Stanford football fans, friends and family; in recognition of Coach Jim Harbaugh's achievements and commitment to the Stanford ideals of the scholar-athlete; that Stanford University will continue financial support to the continuing pursuit of excellence in D1 football.
That Stanford University will pledge a new, extended contract to Coach Harbaugh and the football program for maintaining the highest level of coaching that our world-class scholar athletes have come to expect.
It is vitally important that the Stanford community recognizes the hard work of all Stanford athletes and their coaches. We take great pride in the successes of the Stanford athlete on and off the field. Coach Harbaugh has created and developed an elite football program that not even the late, great Bill Walsh thought possible.
Coach Harbaugh's successes on and off the field are of benefit to not only
the athletes and students but to the greater mission of Stanford University to provide world-class opportunities in everything it pursues. Stanford's name and the pride it brings to students, faculty, alumni, families and friends have never been better as evidenced by the continued coverage of our football athletes on and off the field. From their leadership skills to their scholarship, the Stanford scholar-athlete that plays elite football is a reality. We believe Coach Harbaugh has been an outstanding public figure and embodies the Stanford spirit and its pursuit of excellence.
We hereby petition that Stanford University does not hesitate nor delay to extend a new five year contract to Coach Harbaugh no later than January 1, 2011:
