In two seasons as coach of the Senators from 2014-16, Cameron piloted the squad to a 70-50-17 record. The 62-year-old most recently served as head coach of the Vienna Capitals in Austria.

Cameron is also reportedly being named head coach of the OHL's Ottawa 67's. He is succeeding new Arizona Coyotes coach Andre Tourigny in both positions.
