    Neither was officially announced. Wells has been saying for a while that the job is Vogel's when he gets a staff.

    I love this move! It provides us insurance should Vogel falter and provides a strong voice on the bench for him to turn to during the season.

    Expect Shaw to get finalized once Vogel is officially named coach of the Pacers after the draft, according to @BA_Turner of the LA Times
    34 minutes ago

    Does this mean that Vogel's going to be named the coach after this draft?

    Take it with a grain of salt, but a friend of a friend on Facebook says something may happen tomorrow.

    Bird just hasn't finished reading Vogel's doctoral thesis on why shooting 33% from 3 is actually NOT just as good as shooting 50% from 2.

    To be fair, it was quite an involved read, as compared to Kurt Rambis' essay:

    Am I reading too much into the fact that a guy of Shaw's (assumed) stature would agree to work under Frank? Says a lot more about Frankl's rep than I thought.
    We have Shaw, now... I'd lose my mind if we could secure Laimbeer as a big man coach. I would be very very happy with that lineup.

    Great news! I like Shaw and hopefully the Pacers will announce that Vogel and Shaw's hirings tonight at the Draft Party.

    They should interview Chuck Person and Sam Mitchell too along with Frank Hamblen. Might as well talk to Kareem too to see if he's interested in being our bigman coach.

    I feel very strongly that Sam Mitchell will be the next head coach of the Timberwolves once they're willing to admit that they hung Rambis up to dry.

    I REALLY hope he is given command of the Offense and installs the Triangle Offense next year. It relies heavily on what our rosters strengths seem to be: Midrange Shooting (PG, Lance, DC, Tyler, Dahntay) Penetration (DC, George Hill, Dahntay, Danny) and Post Play with good passing (Roy, Mcbob) while only really relying on the 3 ball to keep defenses honest. Great Hire.

    Mike Wells article. Pretty much what we already knew, but the article also says that we'll only have 3 assistants next year.

    Pacers expected to keep Vogel, add Shaw as assistant
    Jun 24, 2011 | Comments

    Written by
    Mike Wells

    The Indiana Pacers' drawn-out coaching search is slowly coming to a close.

    The Pacers are expected to name Brian Shaw associate head coach once Frank Vogel's interim coach title is removed, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

    Vogel has remained the front-runner for the job ever since he led the Pacers to the playoffs for the first time since 2006.

    One of the hang-ups in Vogel being named coach is that president Larry Bird wanted him to show that he could put together an established coaching staff to help on the court and in the locker room.

    Shaw, who interviewed with Vogel earlier this week, fits that description.

    Shaw was a head coaching candidate for jobs with the Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors. He interviewed for the Pacers job in 2007.

    Shaw, a former teammate of Bird with the Boston Celtics, spent seven years as an assistant coach with the Lakers under Phil Jackson.

    Longtime assistant Dan Burke is expected to remain on the staff.

    Minnesota Timberwolves assistant coach John-Blair Bickerstaff is a possibility to join Vogel's staff.

    Vogel will have to wait to talk to Bickerstaff because Minnesota general manager David Kahn told the Pacers they could not interview Bickerstaff, who is under contract until June 30.

    The Pacers will use a smaller coaching staff next season. They'll go from having up to five assistant coaches to just three next season.

    nothing new really...




    UPDATE No. 2: According to Wells, in addition to Shaw, assistant Dan Burke is expected to stay on staff, while J.B. Bickerstaff could potentially join the staff as well.

    As noted earlier Friday, Bickerstaff could also potentially assume the head-coaching role in Minnesota.

    ---

    UPDATE: According to Mike Wells of the Indianapolis Star via a source, Shaw has agreed to become the associate head coach of the team.

    ---

    Pacers president Larry Bird is waiting to sign Frank Vogel to a contract until the head coach names his coaching staff. Bird wants Vogel to have veteran assistants on his staff and one candidate is Brian Shaw.

    Mike Wells of The Indianapolis Star reports Shaw will interview with Bird and Vogel this week for the lead assistant position.

    Shaw is available after being let go by the Lakers when Phil Jackson retired and not getting the Golden State head coach job, which went to Mark Jackson.

    Shaw, who played with Bird in Boston, interviewed for the Pacers head coach position fours ago and wasn't hired.
