One day after being fired as head coach of the Lakers, Byron Scott has already landed a new job—as director of a Los Angeles anti-mentoring group.

His new position at the Anti-Mentoring Alliance allows Scott—known for hastily benching and publicly rebuking the Lakers’ talented rookies—to continue pursuing his passion of messing with promising youngsters’ development.
