Levine adds offensive line coach to staff

With their bowl game completed, UH head coach Tony Levine has shifted his attention to recruiting and completing his staff.

After selecting an outside receivers coach on Monday, Levine announced that Gordy Shaw joined UH as offensive line coach. Shaw held the same position at Texas State before accepting Levine’s offer.

At UH, he will coach a squad that returns three starters next season.

“Shaw has a tremendous reputation and is extremely well respected within the coaching profession, and we are thrilled to have him join our program,” Levine said. “He is an outstanding teacher who has a great track record of developing and coaching offensive linemen.”

Shaw, who has 34 years of coaching experience, was named Nike Assistant Coach of the Year in 2009. At Hawaii, Shaw helped tutor five All-WAC offensive line selections, and John Estes become a Rimington Award finalist.

He served as offensive coordinator for South Dakota in 2008, when the Coyotes ranked fourth nationally in scoring offense (37.5 points per game), sixth in total offense (461.8 yards per game) and seventh in rushing offense (240 yards per game).

Shaw also had stops at Minnesota, where his line surrendered only nine sacks in 2004, Wyoming, Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo, Cal State Northridge and Northern Arizona.
