Former GWS coach Leon Cameron will be part of a widespread review into South Australia's talent pathways, his first football role since leaving the Giants.

Cameron departed his post with the Giants in May after nine seasons at the helm, having taken over from inaugural coach Kevin Sheedy in 2014.

After a dismal opening to the club's 2022 campaign, GWS and Cameron decided to part ways, with the 49-year-old taking time away from coaching for the foreseeable future.

As revealed by CODE Sports, Cameron will join consultants SBP Advisory in reviewing SA's junior development programs, which will work through an engaging process with staff, coaches, talent managers, players and key stakeholders from both the AFL and SANFL.

“I’ve just got a small part to play," Cameron told the publication.

"They asked for a little bit of assistance and opinion so I was only too happy to help out.

“I think what we’ll find is there’s a lot that they’re doing right.

“But they’ve also put their hand up to say, ‘why not do a bit of a review, have a bit of a look and see if we’re missing something?’ So I think it’s a really good open approach."

Cameron has recently stepped into a casual role with SEN throughout their weekly broadcast schedule, offering insight and analysis in a special comments role.

The now-available coach recently revealed AFL clubs have made advances to secure his services, however Cameron wasn't planning to immediately step back into the fold.

“Craig Kelly (Cameron's manager), who’s been looking after me for my whole footy career basically, he’s had a few phone calls," Cameron said in June.

“But I said, ‘Look, in fairness to the footy clubs, let’s get to the end of June, maybe start of July, and then see where my head is at’.

“Am I enjoying time out of the game? Do I want a full year and not just a half a year? And then crack in and make a decision in early July? I reckon.”

Cameron amassed a 101-4-87 record across 192 games with the Giants, which included 13 finals matches and a grand final appearance.
