David Shaw has been named the Pac-12 Coach of the Year for a second consecutive season.

Shaw, whose name appeared as an NFL coaching candidate in Peter King's "Ten Things I Think I Think" for at least the second time this season, is the first Pac-10/12 coach to win in back-to-back years since Chip Kelly in 2009-10.

Stanford and Oregon tied for the conference lead with five players selected to the First Team, though Stepfan Taylor was not one of those. Arizona's Ka'Deem Carey, who leads the nation in rushing, and the Ducks' Kenjon Barner were named to the First Team, while Taylor and UCLA's Johnathan Franklin earned Second Team honors.

Zach Ertz and David Yankey were the Cardinal's First Team selections on offense, while Trent Murphy, Chase Thomas and Ed Reynolds were named to the First Team defense.

Stanford's other Second Team selections include Kevin Danser, Sam Schwartzstein, Henry Anderson and Ben Gardner. Shayne Skov, Alex Carter and Kevin Hogan are among the Cardinal players who received honorable mention nods.
