INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indiana Pacers announced on Monday the addition of Jim Boylen and Dan Burke as assistants to head coach Frank Vogel's staff. Brian Shaw also was named associate head coach.

"This is a well-rounded, experienced staff," said Vogel. "Each individual brings something different, yet collectively they all fit. Everyone will contribute, whether it's offense, defense, player development or game preparation. All three are very capable of handling any responsibility. There was a lot of interest from other teams in all three of these coaches. The fact they chose to be here is indicative of what we're building.'

Boylen is coming off a stint with the University of Utah. Over his coaching career, Boylen has spent time as an assistant in the NCAA with Michigan State and Utah, and professionally with Golden State, Milwaukee and Houston, where he won two championships.

Burke, who will be entering his 15th season with the organization, was originally hired to Larry Bird's coaching staff in 1997. The start of Burke's 22-year coaching career came with Portland, where he worked for eight years prior to joining Indiana.

Shaw had been an assistant with the Los Angeles Lakers since 2004.
