Spokane will hire Adam Shackleford as the Shock's head coach, according to general manager Adam Nebeker.
According to Jim Meehan's story in Thursday's paper, the hire becomes official after approval from the arenafootball2 office, an approval that shouldn't be too long in coming, according to Nebeker.
Shackleford replaces Chris Siegfried, who, after leading Spokane to the ArenaCup championship in the team's expansion season, quit to become an offensive coordinator in the Arena Football League.
Shackleford was Louisville's offensive coordinator the past two years, where he coached the league's offensive player of the year two years in a row. Louisville was also one of only two teams to defeat Spokane last season, though it lost in the first round of the playoffs.
