(Colo.)-Brian Shaw hired to coach Nuggets

By: Andrew Lacy Posted at: 06/24/2013 08:17 PM
DENVER (AP) — A person with knowledge of the negotiations tells The Associated Press that Indiana Pacers assistant coach Brian Shaw has agreed to succeed George Karl as coach of the Denver Nuggets.

The person spoke to The AP on condition of anonymity Monday night because the deal hadn't been officially announced.

The Nuggets called a news conference for Tuesday afternoon to introduce their new coach.

The Denver Post first announced the agreement with Shaw, and the former Phil Jackson pupil told the newspaper he's been "prepared by the best of the best" for his first NBA head coaching job.

Shaw is a former NBA guard and longtime assistant NBA coach who has interviewed about a dozen times for head coaching positions but kept coming up short until Monday.
