The Denver Nuggets reportedly will gire Brian Shaw to be their new head coach.

Brian Shaw had been passed over for the Nets head coaching position for Nets legend Jason Kidd.

While Shaw has no experience as a head coach, he has had a substantial amount of experience with various coaching staffs. He spent six seasons as an assistant with Phil Jackson with the L.A. Lakers. He then spent the past two seasons as an “associate head coach” with the highly successful Pacers, who lost narrowly to the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals.

George Karl had a lot of success with the Denver Nuggets, but was fired and replaced by Brian Shaw.

While his resume is impressive, as well as strong recommendations, he does have some large shoes to fill. With a team with no true superstar, it is going to be difficult to improve upon what George Karl did. While his Nuggets were bounced from the NBA Playoffs in the first round, they did win 57 games.

Either way, George Karl is out and Brian Shaw is in.
