Source: Stanford hires Vikings assistant as DB coach

Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh continues to fill out his staff with assistants from the pro ranks.

A league source said that Derek Mason, the assistant defensive backs coach for the Minnesota Vikings, has agreed to join Harbaugh’s staff as the secondary coach.

Mason worked for the Vikings for the past three seasons and has ample experience at the college ranks where he has also worked with wide receivers. Mason worked previously under Frank Solich at Ohio University and worked previously at New Mexico State, Bucknell, Idaho State and Weber State. He was a player at Northern Arizona when the Lumberjacks staff included an assistant, Brad Childress.
