Scott began his entertainment career in the mailroom of the William Morris Agency in 1980. His boss gave him 2 clients to work handle in a sink-or-swim scenario. After angering every promoter in North America with the antics of these 2 clients, Scott was elevated to agent. He left WMA in 1990 to head up the touring for the Harlem Globetrotters and the Ice Capades.
He returned to the agency world in 1994 joining ICM with the plan of staying no more than a year while he worked out a deal with ABC Sports. 22 year later, he is still waiting for ABC Sports to close the deal.
