49ers Director of Player Personnel Tom Gamble has been hired by the Philadelphia Eagles as their Vice President of Player Personnel, the Eagles announced.
Gamble was a highly sought-after executive, and was considered for many GM jobs around the league.
He has spent the past eight seasons in the Niners’ front office, the first six as Director of Pro Personnel before being promoted to Player Personnel for the last two years.
“Tom and I have had a great relationship over the years and I know he’s excited to come home,” said Eagles GM Howie Roseman. “He had a great run in San Francisco and they have been very successful over the last few years. He will jump right in with our group and get working on free agency and the draft.”
According to CSN, the 49ers gave the Eagles permission to interview Gamble a year ago, and the deal finally happened.
