Brad Shaw speaks to the media.

This one hurts.

Brad Shaw, who spent the last five years as an assistant coach with the Blue Jackets, will not return to the club next season, per an announcement from the club on Thursday afternoon.

Surprisingly, Shaw will not be a candidate for the Blue Jackets' head coaching position, despite doing an excellent job with the Blue Jackets' defensive corps.. The other Blue Jackets assistant coach, Brad Larsen, is a candidate for the position and will receive an interview.

For the last few years, Shaw has been rumored as a candidate for various NHL head coaching gigs. With the Coyotes, Rangers, Sabres, and Devils all looking for their next coach, he'll have the opportunity to get what he deserves after 15 years as an assistant.
