Mark Madsen will be back in Laker land to coach their D-League affiliate team
Mark Madsen, is finalizing a contract that would bring the corny, yet popular bench warmer, back to the Los Angeles Lakers. The Mad Dog, as he was nicknamed, brought a ton of energy via the bench during the Lakers glory years in the early 2000s.
Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, has reported that Madsen is “finalizing an agreement to become head coach of the Los Angeles D-Fenders.” The D-Fenders were coached by Reggie Theus, but he recently took the head coaching position at Cal State Northridge.
The Mad Dog just finished up his first season as assistant coach at Stanford University. Madsen played his college ball at Stanford before being drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2000 NBA Draft. Madsen will bring his playing experience and dancing moves to the Lakers’ D-League affiliate.
Here is the video of Mark Madsen showing off some of his “moves” while Shaq was rapping during the Lakers championship victory parade.
