49ers hire Tom Gamble as senior personnel executive
The San Francisco 49ers hired former Philadelphia Eagles executive Tom Gamble as senior personnel executive.
Gamble was fired earlier this year in a power struggle between coach Chip Kelly and former general manager Howie Roseman.
“Tom is one of the most experienced, knowledgeable, and respected personnel men in the business,” 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said. “He played an instrumental role in our personnel department from 2005-2012, and is well versed in our system having played a role in its development. This familiarity, along with his many strengths, will be tremendous assets as we prepare for free agency and the draft. It is great to have Tom back with the 49ers.”
Gamble returns to the 49ers after spending the last two seasons as the Eagles' vice president of player personnel.
Gamble oversaw both the college and pro personnel efforts of the 49ers.
