Brian Shaw to interview with Pacers for assistant job

There are reports that former Lakers assistant coach, 45 year old Brian Shaw, will interview for the assistant coach job in Indiana.  Shaw had tried to get a head coaching job in LA, Houston and Golden State and failed for all of them, so he has now set his eyes on assistant role again.

Interestingly, Shaw will reportedly meet with Frank Vogel, which strongly suggests to me that Vogel will get the head coaching job next season.  If Vogel can get Shaw, widely known as a ‘players coach’, I think that will be a boost for this young Pacers team.  

On the other hand, it also concerns me a little.  If Shaw is such a great coach, why hasn’t he gotten a head coaching job by now?  And why has he been turned down by all the teams that he has applied for thus far?

Nevertheless, I still say hire the man.
