[Updated] Brian Shaw in talks to become Indiana Pacers' associate head coach

It apparently didn't take long for Brian Shaw to find another job.

The former Lakers assistant coach has interviewed to become an associate head coach with the Indiana Pacers, though he hasn't reached a deal, according to several NBA officials with knowledge of the situation.

Shaw, 45, interviewed with Pacers President Larry Bird this week and would be the right-hand man for Coach Frank Vogel. Vogel was the Pacers' interim coach for part of last season and Bird has said Vogel is the frontrunner to be head coach for next season. 

Assuming Vogel is named head coach, Shaw hopes to reach an agreement to be his assistant, an NBA official said.

Shaw interviewed with the Lakers last month as part of the team's search for a replacement for Phil Jackson but did not get that job.

Shaw interviewed with Indiana in 2007 for the Pacers' head coaching position but did not get that job either.
