Ex-GWS Giants coach Leon Cameron is understood to have held conversations with his former club the Western Bulldogs.

Cameron departed his role from the Giants in May after 192 games at the helm, a run that spanned nine seasons and included a grand final finish in 2019.

The 49-year-old has since stepped into an advisory role to aid a review into South Australian junior football development, a process that will overlook staff, coaches, talent managers, players and key stakeholders from both the AFL and SANFL.

Cameron revealed earlier this year that his manager, Craig Kelly, had taken calls from AFL clubs in regards to his future, however Cameron stated he wasn't ready to step back onto the AFL coaching landscape.

According to SEN's Sam Edmund, the Bulldogs, a club where Cameron played 172 games, have opened "informal discussions" with their 1993 best and fairest winner.

Edmund revealed Cameron's close relationship with football boss Chris Grant could play a part in the former Giants coach's reunion at Whitten Oval.

“The Western Bulldogs have had informal discussions with Leon Cameron about a role at the Kennel next year,” Edmund said.

“I’m sure Leon has been contacted by many clubs and this was a sounding out from the Dogs, nothing more. ‘What are you up to next year? What do you want to do?’

“Obviously Leon is close to Chris Grant, the current head of football. Played a lot of football with Chris and also Luke Beveridge, who he’s worked with before at Hawthorn."

Cameron was appointed as an assistant coach of the Bulldogs in 2004, holding the role until 2010 before making the switch to Hawthorn, where he worked alongside Luke Beveridge.
