Head Womens Basketball Coach


Carter Shaw was hired in the summer of 2016 as the sixth head coach of Gordon women’s basketball since it began competing in the NCAA during the 1988-89 season.  In his first year with the program, Shaw led the Fighting Scots to their first Commonwealth Coast Conference tournament appearance in thirteen seasons.

Before taking over at Cal State LA in 2014, Shaw spent 16 years as a Division I assistant coach which included stops at UC Riverside, Colgate University, Ball State University, UC Santa Barbara, and Colorado State University. He got his start in collegiate coaching as an assistant at his alma mater, the University of Utah.
