Radio: The Battle to Replace Shayne Skov

Stanford looks to replace inside linebackers coach David Kotulski and perhaps the greatest inside linebacker the school has ever seen, Shayne Skov. Here's a full update on how that battle is going on the defense's second level.

Shayne Skov is gone, and so is former Stanford inside linebackers coach David Kotulski (now Derek Mason's defensive coordinator at Vanderbilt). Peter Hansen has rejoined the Cardinal's staff to take over Kotulski's old position. He evaluates the battle to fill Skov's spot, which includes an update on Noor Davis' progress and Joe Hemschoot's "Swiss Army knife" versatility. Blake Martinez and Kevin Palma are also discussed.
