Denver • The Denver Nuggets officially introduced Brian Shaw as their head coach Tuesday.

Shaw steps in for George Karl, the NBA Coach of the Year who was ousted after the team won a franchise-record 57 games, only to be bounced from the first round of the playoffs for the fourth straight season.

A longtime assistant, Shaw finally gets his chance to coach an NBA team. He's been mentored by the likes of Phil Jackson and was the associate head coach for Indiana during the season that just ended, when the Pacers made it to the Eastern Conference finals before being eliminated by LeBron James and the Miami Heat in seven games.
