Quarterback Kevin Hogan to return to Stanford

Stanford quarterback Kevin Hogan will return to school as a fifth-year senior, opting to make one more run with the Cardinal next season instead of entering the NFL draft or pursuing other career paths.

Hogan announced his decision via Twitter on Thursday, the final day for underclassman to declare for the draft. The school confirmed he would be back.

Hogan's return should boost Stanford's chances to contend for the Pac-12 title. It also delays plans for his highly touted backups, freshman Keller Chryst and sophomore Ryan Burns, to take over the position.

Hogan helped stabilize the program after Andrew Luck's departure and led the Cardinal to consecutive conference championships and Rose Bowl berths in his first two years as the starter before he and the program slid back this season. He has thrown for 6,518 yards, 48 touchdowns and 21 interceptions.
