Wichita, KS (Thunder) - The Wichita Thunder, ECHL affiliate of the NHL's Edmonton Oilers, AHL's Bakersfield Condors and powered by Toyota, announced today that Head Coach Malcolm Cameron will not return for the 2019-20 season.
"I want to thank Malcolm for his hard work and dedication to the organization over the last three seasons," stated Thunder General Manager Joel Lomurno. "Malcolm and I met a few times over the last few weeks and taking his thoughts into consideration we both agreed that it was best for us to go in a new direction."
Under Cameron, the Thunder secured their first full NHL affiliations with Ottawa and Edmonton and returned to the playoffs in 2018 for the first time since the 2012-13 season.
"After three years with the Thunder, I decided that I was ready for a new and different challenge," said Cameron. "I'm very appreciative of the experience both myself and my family had here. I'd like to thank the staff, booster club, ownership and fans for the support they showed the team."
The search for the next head coach is underway as the Thunder prepare for their 28th season, one which will see the ECHL All-Star Game played in Wichita on January 22, 2020.
