The former Crystal Palace defender has been handed the chance to continue playing while taking over the duties as reserve team coach for the Division One club.
The 35-year-old is out of contract in the summer and Reid is keen to see Shaw take over the second string from academy manager Steve Ogrizovic, who was in charge of the reserves this season after Gary Mills left to become the new Notts County boss.
"I've had a quiet chat with Richard because I would like him to be involved in some way," Reid told the club's official website.
"Bearing in mind his age, it would be fair to say it would only be a one-year playing deal but having spoken to him, he thinks he can certainly carry on playing.
"I know a lot about him having watched him throughout his career and he's somebody I'd like to be in the squad.
"But he also works well with the kids and it would be great for us and them if he could take over the reserves.
"He's gone off to think about it for a while as you would expect anybody to do and we'll meet up again in a couple of weeks or so."
Meanwhile, The Sky Blues look to be one of four Football League clubs that are showing an interest in young Scottish striker Keigan Parker.
The 21-year-old currently plies his trade for Scottish First Division side St Johnstone and has represented his country at Under-21 level.
