Shaw withdraws from Eastern search

The Washington Huskies won’t have to worry about finding a new assistant basketball coach.
Jim Shaw said this morning he is withdrawing as a candidate to become the new head coach at Eastern Washington.
“I’ve got a good job here, I’m happy where I’m at and I’ve got a son in high school,” Shaw said. “I just didn’t think the timing was right.”
Shaw was one of four candidates to replace Mike Burns, who was fired late last month. He had an official interview on Tuesday in Cheney.
The other three candidates who interviewed at Eastern were UNC-Wilmington assistant Kirk Earlywine, Seattle Pacific head coach Jeff Hironaka and former Boise State head coach Rod Jensen.
There are indications that Earlywine is the favorite for the job.
UPDATE 3 P.M. — Also, to answer several questions, Jrue Holiday is in Seattle today, visiting his brother and UW coaches. He is expected to head tomorrow to Portland for the Rose City Classic. I would imagine any comments he would have about anything would come from down there, but I wouldn’t think he would say anything definitive for a little while yet. What I have heard, however, is that UW has some work to do to keep Holiday from attending UCLA.
