Upon retiring from playing, Shaw returned to Milwall in a coaching role before joining Coventry City as the club’s assistant manager in 2012.

When manager Andy Thorn was sacked after a poor start to the 2012-13 season, Shaw was appointed as caretaker manager until the club found a replacement.

When Mark Robins took over as manager in September 2012 he brought in his own backroom staff and Shaw subsequently left the club.

In February 2014 he joined former club Crystal Palace as head coach of their under-16’s academy team.

After two and a half years working with the under-16’s Shaw moved up age groups to work as coach for the under 23’s team.

He left the Eagles in October 2019 to pursue other opportunities which includes sports apparel company Tornado.
