Carter Shaw enters his sixth year with the Gauchos, having seen his teams qualify for March Madness in nine of the 11 seasons he has served as an assistant coach at the Division I level. Shaw serves as UCSB's offensive coordinator and works primarily with wing player development. In addition, he has taken on the role of co-recruiting coordinator while also continuing to handle the responsibilities of scheduling opponents, and overseeing the program's summer camps. A native of Salt Lake City, Utah, Shaw joined the Gauchos after working as an assistant coach at Colorado State for two seasons, both of which resulted in NCAA Tournament appearances. In 2000-01 the Rams posted a 25-7 overall record and won the Mountain West Conference Tournament title before advancing to the second round of the Big Dance. While in Fort Collins, Colo., Shaw was placed in charge of scouting, tape exchange and editing, player development, and assisting with the offense. The year before joining the staff at CSU, Shaw was part of another Mountain West championship and NCAA tourney team at the University of Utah. With Shaw on board, the Utes made an NCAA appearance in 1997-98 and earned a berth in the Postseason WNIT the following year. After graduating from Utah in 1995 with a B.S. in exercise and sports science, Shaw spent one season as a volunteer assistant coach with the Utes' men's program. In 1995-96, the Utes advanced to the NCAA Sweet 16, the first of Shaw's nine straight postseason appearances as a coach. Shaw also gained coaching experience at his alma mater, Intermountain Christian High School in Salt Lake City, as well as with the WNBA's Utah Starzz, where he spent part of the summer of 2000 scouting opponents and breaking down game tape as a volunteer assistant. Shaw is single and resides in Santa Barbara.
