Longtime Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology men's basketball head coach Jim Shaw passed away in his Terre Haute, Ind., home on Tuesday morning.
Shaw retired as men's basketball coach in 2014 after a 20-year stint at the NCAA Division III institution. He completed his Rose-Hulman career ranked second in school history for career coaching wins (303) and winning percentage (.578), including an 82-29 record in his final four seasons.
Shaw's top era of Rose-Hulman men's basketball success came over his final three seasons, as the Fightin' Engineers played in three consecutive NCAA Division III Tournaments, following three conference tournament titles and two regular season championships from 2012-14.
Shaw graduated from Terre Haute South High School in 1978 and earned bachelor's degrees in journalism and political science from Indiana University in 1982. He added a master's degree in sports administration from Indiana State University in 1989.
