Los Angeles - P.C. Shaw has been named the UCLA Director of Baseball Operations, head coach John Savage announced Wednesday. Shaw joins the UCLA baseball staff as the program's first ever Director of Baseball Operations, and will assist with day-to-day administrative duties, and serve as the program's liaison between the rest of the UCLA Athletic Department.
"P.C. will be a great addition to our baseball program," Savage said. "He will help us off the field in day-to-day operations. P.C. is a major asset for UCLA baseball."
Shaw comes to UCLA with an extensive background in both baseball coaching and business operations. From 1992 to 1994 he served as an undergraduate assistant coach at Cal State Northridge, where his duties included coaching the infielders and outfielders, running the offense and coaching the bases. The Matadors reached the NCAA postseason in two of Shaw's three seasons at CSUN. In 1992, Cal State Northridge finished fourth at the Midwest Regional in Wichita, Kan., and in 1993 the Matadors took third place at the West Regional at Arizona State. With Shaw in charge of overseeing the infielders, the 1993 squad led the nation with 85 double plays for an average of 1.52 per game.
In 1995, Shaw entered the business world as a Corporate Purchasing Agent for Minarik, a large manufacturer and distributor of motion control products. However, he could not stay away from baseball for long.
Shaw returned to the field in 2002 and served as a baseball coach and algebra teacher at Bishop Alemany High School in Mission Hills, Calif. In 2003, he took over assistant coaching duties at Chatsworth High School, where, in 2003 and 2004, he helped lead the school to back-to-back CIF and National Championships. At Chatsworth, Shaw assisted the hitters and coached third base. He was also instrumental in guiding the Chancellors to a state-record 54-game winning streak. In 2005, his final season at Chatsworth, his team finished as the CIF City Section runner-up.
A graduate of Montclair Prep High School, Shaw attended UCLA for two years in 1987 and 1988, and graduated from Cal State Northridge in 1994.
He and his wife, Jill, reside in Chatsworth, Calif.
