Former North Melbourne coach Brad Scott lands plum AFL job

It took almost eight months, but former North Melbourne coach Brad Scott has landed himself a new job.

The 43-year-old has been confirmed as the AFL’s new competition evolution manager.

In a statement on afl.com.au, Scott’s role will be part of a “revamped football operations department” ahead of the 2020 season.

It remains unclear if the appointment affects the payout drama surrounding his agreed exit from North Melbourne.

The club and Scott mutually parted ways in May last year, with reports North could be forced to pay Scott for the 2020 season if he wasn’t able to secure a senior role.

That figure was reported by the Herald Sun as around $800,000.

Scott was reportedly in the running for a number of senior coaching positions, including Carlton and St Kilda, but ultimately missed out on both.

Scott’s new AFL role will include “assessing game trends with various stakeholders including players, coaches and analysts” and will work closely with the Competition Committee.

The two-time premiership player had previously served on that committee, alongside Brisbane’s Chris Fagan.

“Scott will also play a major role in decision-making around rules, regulations and growth of all AFL competitions,” the statement read.

He will begin his new role from next week.
