1975 Profile: Bob Shaw

Receivers Coach
"Bob Shaw, ex-Ohio State University athlete and veteran professional coach, works with the Bills' pass receivers. Shaw moved to Buffalo in 1972 from Chicago where he and Jim Ringo were members of the Bears' staff.
An All-America in football and basketball at Ohio State, Shaw was an end for Paul Browns' Buckeyes in the early 1940's, about the same time a quarterback named Lou Saban was starring for Indiana. Bob was selected to the All-Big Ten Conference first team and named to play in the College All-Star game.
He played professionally with the old Cleveland Rams and went to Los Angeles with them where he stayed until 1949. Traded to the Chicago Cardinals in 1950, Bob finished his career in the Windy City.
His coaching experience includes tours as a college and junior college mentor, several years as a pro assistant, and two different jobs as a head coach in the Canadian League. Shaw was a high school coach in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio at the time he was named receiver coach of the Baltimore Colts in 1957. He worked for two years in Baltimore before going to the 49ers in 1959. From 1960-62, Shaw was head football coach and athletic director at New Mexico Military Institute where his most prized product was Dallas Cowboy quarterback Roger Staubach. He became head coach at Saskatchewan of the CFL in 1963 and switched to Toronto two years later. Bob was on the staff of the New Orleans Saints during the 1967-68 seasons and went to the Bears in 1969."
