Brian Shaw confirms he's the new head coach of the Denver Nuggets
Brian Shaw tells the 'Denver Post' he has accepted the job as the new head coach of the Denver Nuggets.
Shaw has led the ranks of assistant coach candidates for head coaching jobs for several seasons. He worked with the Lakers under Phil Jackson until 2011, then served under Frank Vogel in developing the up-and-coming Pacers.
The Nuggets fired George Karl earlier this month, just days after GM Masai Ujiri left to take over basketball ops in Denver.
Shaw told the Post he does not expect to run Tex Winter's triangle offense, made famous by Jackson.
