Stanford coach David Shaw issued a statement to the Daily addressing Shaw's arrest.
“We have an expected standard of excellence and conduct for our football players and Shayne failed to adhere to those standards,” head football coach David Shaw said Monday in a statement to The Daily through Jim Young, senior assistant athletic director of communications and media relations.
“It’s a matter we are taking very seriously,” Shaw said. “Shayne will be responsible to adhere to any legal responsibilities regarding this event, along with internal ramifications, which will be determined by the program.”
Skov, a junior, was Stanford's leading tackler as a sophomore in 2010, and was expected to be the finest player on Stanford's defense in 2011 before a season-ending knee injury in September.
