McCammon had two stints as head coach of the Philadelphia Flyers, also serving as the team's general manager during the latter. He was also the head coach of the Vancouver Canucks and an assistant coach for the Edmonton Oilers on two different occasions. With Vancouver in 1988–89, he was runner-up to Montreal's Pat Burns for the Jack Adams Trophy as NHL Coach of the Year. He won the Stanley Cup with Edmonton Oilers in 1987 as Director of Player Development, 2002 and 2008 as a scout with Detroit. McCammon's name was added to the Stanley Cup in 2002 with Detroit. He presently is co-owner of the Gastown restaurant So.cial in Vancouver. Ex-Canucks goaltender Kirk McLean is a partner.
