Scott was a very solid contributor over a number of years with the Lions and was seen as a fearless figure in defence. While defiant, Scott battled numerous injuries including one incurred during his milestone 150th game late in 2005.
Like his brother, Scott was renowned for being one of the hardest players in the league. They were both integral members of the Lions’ first two premierships in 2001 and 2002.
Injuries saw him miss the 2003 premiership and sidelined for the latter part of 2004.
Scott’s lacklustre form in 2004 and 2005 fed speculation that his contract with the Lions would not be renewed, however he remained with the club and announced on 10 August 2006 that he would retire at the end of the season. Scott played his farewell game in Round 22 against the Saints.
Retirement from playing saw Scott as the development coach at Collingwood, where he had success working closely with a number of young Magpies and other players.
Scott was also a candidate for the vacant coaching position at Richmond, however he believed his skill set suited North far better and was appointed as North Melbourne coach for the 2010 season, signing a three-year contract on 17 August 2009.

Scott had a terrible start to his coaching career, with three of the first four matches resulting in losses, including a 104-point thrashing from 2009 runners-up St Kilda. Since then, North made steady progress and finished outside the top eight on percentage.
The beginning of the 2015 season once again saw Scott make some vital inclusions to North Melbourne’s list, with the addition of tall-forward Jarrad Waite and medium forward / midfielder Shaun Higgins.
Despite finishing 8th, Scott was under scrutiny after a highly controversial decision to rest 9 players in Round 23 against Richmond, which was deemed by many to be a form of ‘tanking’.
Scott was appointed as the coach of Essendon for 2023 in September 2022.
Scott currently ranks 3rd for most AFL/VFL games coached without making a grand final and is the only one of those three coaches to do it solely at the one club then scott resigned as Kangaroos coach on 26 May 2019.
