PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Eagles hired Tom Gamble to be vice president of player personnel.
Gamble spent the previous eight seasons with the defending NFC champion 49ers, including the last two as director of player personnel. The move was announced Wednesday.
Gamble will work in both the college and pro personnel departments.
“I would like to thank Tom for his hard work, dedication and loyalty over the past eight seasons,” Niners general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement. “He has played an instrumental role within our personnel department, and is a true professional in every sense of the word. As a friend, I will always appreciate the relationship we have, and wish him and his family all the best.”
Gamble began his NFL career working for the Eagles in 1988 and stayed until 1994, serving as a college scouting administrator, area scout, contract negotiator, and director of pro scouting. Gamble worked for the New York Jets as a defensive assistant-quality control coach from 1995-96. He became a pro scout for the Baltimore Ravens in 1997 before joining the Indianapolis Colts as a college scout from 1998-2004.
His father, Harry Gamble, was the Eagles’ president from 1986-95. —
