Mark Madsen's tenure as the head coach of the D-Fenders were brief.
The Lakers have added Madsen to Coach Mike D'Antoni's staff as a player-development coach, according to a team spokesman.
Madsen was introduced as coach of the Lakers' D-League affiliate on May 14.
"From a young age, I always kind of had coaching in the back of my mind," Madsen said in May. "I love everything about coaching."
