Video: Coach speak with Stanford RBs coach Tavita Pritchard

In Tavita Pritchard's first go round at Stanford, he left a pretty big mark on the program.

In case you don't remember, Pritchard - making his first career start under center, no less - fired a touchdown pass that upset then-No. 1 USC and completed the biggest upset in college football history (by the point spread). For all intents and purposes, it signaled the beginning of Stanford football's resurgence under Jim Harbaugh.

Harbaugh is now gone and so is the resurgence, Stanford has fully arrived as a national power, and Pritchard is still there. After wrapping up his playing career in 2009, he served as a volunteer assistant in 2010, assisted with the defensive backs the last two seasons and is now in his first year as a full-time assistant, coaching the Cardinal's running backs.

"I believe in this place 150 percent and I am so grateful that I'm here - that I originally got here and that I'm still here. I don't know how I got here but once I'm here, I'm hanging on for dear life," Pritchard said. "I love it here and I'm going to stay as long as I can."
