It was a major mistake for Stanford to pass up Norm Chow for Walt Harris. I know their AD is old friends with Harris, but really Chow is a very smart coach, as you said. The only thing I might think is that he doesn't interview well, or maybe a bit too quirky, but he seems normal enough from what I've seen.
I could see Chow going to Chicago to tutor Rex Grossman. I could see the Jags and Cardinals doing a lot to get him as well.
